PLAIN & FANCY CATS: A Collection

There are people who keep cats and people who are kept by cats. This distinguished collection of cat stories will prove awfully good reading to both groups, and even to those dullards who hate the beasts. Included is Colette's well-known The Cat, an erudite article by Agnes Repplier on cats in literature, Michael Joseph's story of Charles, his Siamese, Kipling, Carl Van Vechten, Saki, May Sarton and Don Marquis' mehitabel. Margaret Cooper Gay outlines a witty and practical program for getting a cat, and also an acerb short piece on who keeps cats and why. John Beecroft writes the introduction and Walter Chandoha contributes the photographs. A pussy-prone audience will welcome this impressive anthology.
