Tough minded sportwriter Paul Gallico had one secret weakness, he was putty in a cat's paws, especially a goodlooking, proud feline. His book THE SILENT MIAOW is one of his very best books, ranking right up there with THE SNOW GOOSE and THE POSEIDON ADVENTURE. Perhaps this won't make you a cat lover, but it can't hurt, and I guarantee this book will bring a twinkle and maybe a tear to the eye of everyone who has had a cat select them for living with.
Whether or not your cat is still alive, or has joined its compadres on the farther shores of RAINBOW BRIDGE, Gallico's book wil make you laugh out loud with the cunning photos of the beautiful cats of the 1960s, cats not too far removed from the cats of today. There's a little bit of sexism in the text, but that's to be expected, and as we all know, Gallico was actually a writer who thought the world of women, and wrote some amazing women characters from LUDMILA to MRS ARRIS.
But the cats are the thing, and a good time is guaranteed by all.
