The cats that have shared Doris Lessing's life have characters as vivid as any person: ragbag, Rufus, beautiful Charles, the unequaled El Magnifico. First intrigued by the wild creatures on the African farm where she grew up, Lessing's fascination with felines was nurtured by the handsome domesticated creatures who inhabited her flats in London, and grew into real love with the awkwardly lovable El Magnifico, the last cat to share her home.
"Wonderful... A work of exquisite tenderness and poignancy. A distillation of everything that makes her work such a joy to read."
"An unsentimental and unwhimsical, but not unpartisan, study of cat-and-human relationships. An entertaining read for both car and Lessing connoisseurs."
