Distillery Cats: Profiles in Courage of the World's Most Spirited Mousers - Brad Thomas Parsons

we seem to be starting off with the felines that aren’t great mousers, but have a lot of personality and are a big hit with visitors to the brewery or distillery. I have not had a cat in my life for a while, and reading this book is reminding me, in a rush, of charming cat behaviour. I also appreciate the cocktail recipes.

Reading progress update: I've read 38%. I'm not sure what this is about but the atmosphere is intense
Oligarchy - Scarlett Thomas

Door 16:  St. Lucia's Day

 

Book: Read a book... newly released in November or December of this year,

 

 

 

 

 

 

So far, the focus has been on the barely suppressed madness that occurs when fifteen-year-old girls are sent away from home and locked away in an institution that imposes random rules of behaviour, focused only on appearances, not substance. The girls are feral without being free.

 

I don't know where this is going but I like how it's getting there.

Distillery Cats: Profiles in Courage of the World's Most Spirited Mousers - Brad Thomas Parsons

I finally flipped through this a bit, had a look inside - and it's somewhat different than I was expecting. it's going to work better as a "short story" option for me - in other words, it becomes a book I read portions of, in between novels, like what I'm doing with the Capek book these days. I'll finish Dead Corse tonight, and then sample some of Distillery Cats before my next novel, Maigret Takes a Room.

 

Distillery Cats, at quick glance, seems like it covers a cat at a particular distillery for two or three pages, and there are illustrations - lovely ones - where I thought there would be photos. now that I've realized what I've got with this book - that it's not like The Ravenmaster, for instance - I've adjusted my expectations, and am looking forward to meeting all the cats.
