Cheryl Strayed, author of WILD [Lost Cat] is revelatory ... it moves easily and hilariously from one sentence and chapter to the next ... it's ingeniously crafted ... a fiercely charming narrative that sneaks up on a reader, just as the best fantastical books do ... Lost Cat is an incredibly endearing work, a snapshot of the madness of loving and agonizing over and chasing after animals. -- Jillian Steinhauer The Los Angeles Review of Books, on LOST CAT An uncommonly charming and wise tale. -- Alexis Madrigal The Atlantic, on LOST CAT This playful, quirky book is like a cat that climbs into your lap and purrs; it's impossible not to love it. -- Gayle Brandeis San Francisco Chronicle, on LOST CAT A tender, imaginative memoir infused with equal parts humor and humanity ... an absolute treat from cover to cover. -- Maria Popova Brain Pickings, on LOST CAT
