Summary expansion
Haughty Bengals, Himalayan high points and feral strays: these are the haunting familiars of Nina de Gramont's superbly imagined collection of themed tales. Prowling through every story, these enigmatic creatures expose the hidden fears and passions of the female heart, and illuminate the deep truths about men and love. A young woman finds two dark surprises in her home: a magpie dismembered by her two cats, and an unsettling glimpse of her fiance's secret inclinations. A frustrated newlywed clings to the pampered pet which is the last vestige of her privileged upbringing, until a rangy stray shows her the true meaning of marriage. As clever and finessed as the feline disposition it celebrates, OF CATS AND MEN marks the arrival of an exciting new voice in fiction
