From “a genuine American Dostoevsky” (The Washington Post): a dazzling, funny, bittersweet exploration of the mysteries of relationship, both human and animal.
When his favorite cat Biscuit goes missing, Peter Trachtenberg sets out to find her. The journey takes him 700 miles and many years into his past– into the history of his relationships with cats and the history of his relationship with his wife F., who may herself be on the verge of disappearing. What ensues is a work that recalls travel narratives from The Incredible Journey to W. G. Sebald’s The Rings of Saturn. Trachtenberg ponders the mysteries of feline intelligence (why do cats score worse on some tests than pigeons?), the origins of their domestication, their terrible treatment during the Middle Ages. He also looks at the riddle of why any of us loves whom we love and all the unforeseen places to which that devotion leads us.

A Lord's DesireWeston's powerful presence has been known to strip even the bravest men of their courage and will, but this bold Welsh beauty greets him with proud defiance, accusing him of foul crimes he never committed. Turning the tables on his brazen captor, the handsome giant of a man manages to escape and take Shana as his hostage—igniting her even greater fury . . . and a passion neither anticipates.
