Cat Getting Out of a Bag and Other Observations by Jeffrey Brown
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Celebrated comic artist and graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown's collection of all-new drawings sweetly illustrates the joys of living with a cat. Featured in McSweeney's and on NPR's This American Life, and praised by comic luminaries Chris Ware and Daniel Clowes, Brown's work has always paid tribute to felines as they curl up on couches and purr on the peripheries of his autobiographical stories. Cat Getting Out of a Bag follows his cat Mistyreally, any catas shegoes about her everyday activities and adventures. In a series of drawings, Brown perfectly captures the universal charm of cats in a lovely book sure to please fans and cat lovers of any stripe.
My sister bought this book for me for Christmas this year, knowing how much I read various cat-related comics. I have also lived with two cats for the last fourteen years, only recently losing one of them, so I am was able to relate to nearly all of the observations presented. It made me smile, made me laugh, and made me thankful for the cats that have ruled my life all these years. It's just what I needed.
