9780393349900: The Fur Person (Gift edition)

“In whatever May Sarton writes one can hear the human heart pulsing just below the surface.”―Washington Post Book World

This enchanting story and classic of cat literature is drawn from the true adventures of Tom Jones, May Sarton’s own cat. Prior to making the author’s acquaintance, he is a fiercely independent, nameless Cat About Town. Growing tired of his vagabond lifestyle, however, he concludes that there might be some appeal in giving up his freedom for a home. Finally, a house materializes that does seem acceptable and so do the voices that inhabit it. It is here that he begins his transformation into a genuine Fur Person. Sarton’s book is one of the most beloved stories ever written about the joys and tribulations inherent in sharing one’s life with a cat. It is now reissued in a gorgeous edition featuring David Canright’s beautiful illustrations. 11 color illustrations
