Splendid. Trachtenberg is a marvelous writer. His observations on cats, their 'domesticated' lives, the history of the relationship between cats and their owners (and owners relationships with spouses and finances) are fresh and insightful. Trachtenberg is funny, smart and unflinching in describing his particular set of 'insane devotions'.

It would have been nice if this were a book about the human animal connection. Instead, it's a self-absorbed, occasionally pornographic look at the deterioration of a marriage...at least as far as I got. I found it exceedingly self-absorbed...nothing to recommend.
