Synopsis: Haughty Bengals, faithful Maine coons, and feral strays: These are the haunting familiars that animate Nina de Gramont's superbly imagined debut collection of short fiction. Prowling through every story, these enigmatic creatures expose the truth that lies beneath the surface of every encounter between women and the men they love.

A young woman finds two dark surprises in her home: a magpie dismembered by her mischievous cat, and an unsettling glimpse of her fiancé's secret inclinations...

A pregnant housewife quietly suffers a visit from her troubled brother-in-law while her hidden anger comes to life in the suddenly hostile behavior of her docile house cat...

A frustrated newlywed clings to the last vestige of her well-appointed upbringing — a pampered Himalayan high point — until a rangy stray cat shows her the true meaning of marriage...

As clever, finessed, and keen as the feline disposition it celebrates, Of Cats and Men marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in fiction.

From the Back Cover: "[B]eautifully and deftly crafted. In cleverly demonstrating how human beings reveal themselves in their relationships to animals, de Gramont has produced illuminating and moving narratives about fear and loss, connection and love."
Publishers Weekly

"These stories are superbly crafted, dark and funny, at times as enigmatic as the two beasts in the title. Of Cats and Men is a sensuous and wickedly honest book about women and men and the sly, aloof, casually beautiful animals who pad through their lives like the haunting afterthoughts of love, marriage, divorce, childhood, and loss."
— Brad Watson, author of Last Days of the Dog-Men

"Nina de Gramont's stories — about the gentle tug-of-war known as love — are so sweet and savory that on reaching the end of this collection, you'll want to turn to the first page and begin reading all over again. Imbued with keen intelligence and sly wit, these stories can, in one stroke, snatch your heart and hold it captive."
— Ann Darby, author of The Orphan Game

"Men, like cats, find the best chair in the house and plop on it, loath to rise. After reading Nina de Gramont's book you may find other more important similarities between the two species."
— Rita Mae Brown, author of Claws and Effect
