Booklist Review

One-hundred-one feline funnies culled from the pages of the past 65 years of the New Yorker. As anyone who is owned by a cat can imagine, the peculiarities of feline behavior make perfect foils for the New Yorker's stable of sophisticated cartoonists. From George Booth's familiar house o' cats, where dopey felines give witness to dopier humans trying to make sense of life's ironies, to Edward Koren's shaggy-lined cats ensconced in the lives and laps of oh-so-smug Yuppie owners, to Charles Addams' more sinister versions of cat traits, these exemplary pieces of humor are nothing less than hilarious. The epitome is reached in one cartoon by Bernard Schoenbaum, in which two ladies are sitting in the living room having tea and in front of them struts the hostess' cat--at which point the hostess remarks to her friend, in regard to the pet, "She has her own agenda." Cat owners, ain't it the truth! ~--Brad Hooper
