ANOTHER INSANE DEVOTION: On the Love of Cats and Persons

PETER TRACHTENBERG    Book Number: 86556    Product format: Paperback

When his favourite cat Biscuit goes missing, Peter Trachtenberg sets out on a journey to find her which takes him 700 miles and many years into his past. He delves into the history of his relationship with cats and with his wife F, who may herself be on the verge of disappearing. He looks at the riddle of why any of us love whom we love, and all the unforeseen places to which that devotion leads. His lyrical writing is spiked with intellectual digressions and unlikely graphics, and his eccentric meditation on loss and transition is not your everyday cat book. Straddling fiction and non-fiction in the way created by W. G. Sebald, this is a beautifully written book by an affectionate cat lover. 281pp, illus. Paperback.

Very moving, but amusing and interesting as well. Not just for those owned by cats.
