"Charming, witty, and winning...[A] delightful sequel."
SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER
Norton charmed even the most avowed cat haters in the bestselling THE CAT WHO WENT TO PARIS. Now, in Peter Gethers' and Norton's further adventures, the extraordinary feline with the great Scottish Fold ears, is hightailing it to the south of France--and making pit stops all over the globe (with his favorite human, of course). Along the way, Norton and his human companion face change and learn to understand the problems and the pleasure that come with growing up and growing older together. Like its predecessor, A CAT ABROAD is funny, touching, and wise.

About the Author:

Peter Gethers has spent almost a decade chronicling the life of his extraordinary cat. When he has some free time, he's also a novelist, publisher, and screenwriter. Under the pseudonym Russell Andrews, he has written the bestselling thrillers Gideon and Icarus. He lives in New York City, Sag Harbor, and, luckily, Sicily.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Further engaging tales from Gethers (The Cat Who Went to Paris, 1991, etc.) about travels and adventures with his worldly Scottish Fold cat, Norton. When Gethers (ex-publisher of Villard Books) decides to leave New York and the pressurized corporate world for life in a 300- year-old house in the south of France, his closest companions- -girlfriend Janis and feline Norton--waste no time in packing their bags. And so begins a yearlong odyssey abroad, where the threesome quickly become immersed in the French way of life. Gethers still has work commitments--writing this book, a screenplay, and a TV series. But he finds plenty of time for amusements (seeking out chateaus and cathedrals, etc.); eating fine food (enjoying the local cuisine becomes a favorite pastime for humans and feline alike); visiting Italy, Spain, and Holland; entertaining friends from the States; and bonding with other expatriates who ``all made the same choice we'd made--to leave one life behind and resettle in a French paradise.'' As always, Gethers and Janis are accompanied everywhere by their cat, who's welcomed with open arms by the cat- loving French (hotels provide Norton with complimentary room service; restaurants serve him delicacies, such as a marzipan mouse; and winemakers offer him his own bottles). Finally, the trio end their foreign idyll, returning to the US with a newfound joie de vivre. Witty and warmhearted--a delightful addition to the cat- fancier's bookshelf. -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
