Books by Cleveland Amory

Released: Nov. 1, 1997

"Amory's simple point—that our treatment of animals should be governed by the rules of common decency and respect—is stated convincingly, with brio and great dignity. (16 pages photos, not seen) (Author tour; TV satellite tour)"
Cruelty is disgusting, and Amory (The Best Cat Ever, 1993, etc.) paints it just so in this story of the haven he helped create for animals suffering from every rank and radius of human abuse. Read full book review >
THE BEST CAT EVER by Cleveland Amory
Released: Oct. 26, 1993

"Not the best cat book ever—but R.I.P., Polar Bear. (B&W line drawings throughout)"
Fans of Amory's delightful cat books (The Cat and the Curmudgeon, 1990; The Cat Who Came for Christmas, 1987) may find this third and final volume in the series disappointing: It's really more a memoir of Amory's college days and writing career than an account of his famed relationship with his much beloved feline, Polar Bear.
