Of Cats and Men: Profiles of History's Great Cat-Loving Artists, Writers, Thinkers, and Statesmen by [Kalda, Sam]

 

Hello again, everyone. Tonight finds us in a new book review and this time it’s Of Cats and Men: Profiles of History’s Great Cat-Loving Artists, Writers, Thinkers, and Statesmenby Sam Kalda.

Some of history’s greatest men have been cat lovers, and their cats have contributed to their genius and legacy: the static charge from a cat’s fur sparked young Nikola Tesla’s interest in electricity; Sir Isaac Newton is said to have invited the first cat flap; visitors to Ernest Hemingway and Winston Churchill’s homes still encounter the descendants of their beloved cats; William S. Burroughs and Andy Warhol both wrote books inspired by their feline friends.

This clever book illustrates that man’s best friend may not just be dogs but cats, seen by way of  witty profiles, interesting drawings, and quotes from history’s most notable “cat men.” Of Cats and Men pays tribute to thirty luminaries and visionaries who have one thing in common: a pure and enduring love of cats.

This book will make an excellent summer read and would be suitable for both study groups and gift giving as well.
