Cats versus Dogs: this two-book collection is the perfect gift for both dog- and cat-people and for lovers of literature alike.
For centuries cats have been venerated and mistrusted in equal measure. Through memoir, fiction, letters and poems, the writers in these pages celebrate cats and their curious ways. Introduced by Margaret Atwood, this beautiful gift book contains writing by Alice Walker, Edward Gorey, Mary Gaitskill, Caitlin Moran, Ernest Hemingway, Nikola Tesla, John Keats, Muriel Spark, Lynne Truss, Hilaire Belloc, Guy du Maupassant, Rebecca West and more. Plus: photography from Elliot Ross.
Three covetable anthologies that celebrate our most popular passions: dogs, walking and fishing.
The writers and poets collected within this delectable anthology reflect on the joys and pitfalls of dog ownership with wit and affection. From Roald Amundsen’s account of using sled dogs in his expedition to the South Pole to J.R. Ackerley’s tender portrayal of his ill-behaved dog Tulip, On Dogs traces the canine’s journey from working animal to pampered pet. With a humorous introduction by Tracey Ullman (an inveterate adopter of strays), and 6 arresting dog portraits by international photographer Rhian ap Gruffydd. The perfect gift for dog-lovers.
