Cat Is Art Spelled Wrong

by Caroline Casey Chris Fischbach Sarah Schultz

"Coffee House Press, a major nonprofit publisher, recently launched a Kickstarter for a book examining the Internet's cat video fetish. The book, if the Kickstarter campaign reaches its $25,000 goal, will be titled Cat is Art Spelled Wrong, and examine themes like what makes something art, whether art is good or bad, and how taste develops. In other words, cat videos can actually be . . . pretty serious."--The Washington Post"Coffee House Press one-ups all boring Kickstarter campaigns with Catstarter, a campaign to fund a book on cat videos."--The Millions"Coffee House Press's upcoming book, titled Cat is Art Spelled Wrong, takes the opportunity to examine a seemingly irrelevant subject from new perspectives--from 'the line is between reality/self on the internet' to 'how cat videos demonstrate either that nothing matters, or that any art matters if anyone thinks it does.' Thus, it's an earnest attempt to uncover more about human nature--especially in today's internet-driven world."--Cool Hunting Fifteen writers, all addressing not just our fascination with cat videos, but also how we decide what is good or bad art, or art at all; how taste develops, how that can change, and why we love or hate something. It's about people and technology and just what it is about cats that makes them the internet's cutest despots. Contributors include: Sasha Archibald, Will Braden, Stephen Burt, Maria Bustillos, David Carr, Matthea Harvey, Alexis Madrigal, Joanne McNeil, Ander Monson, Kevin Nguyen, Elena Passarello, Jillian Steinhauer, Sarah Schultz, and Carl Wilson.

Everyone warned that Homer would be an "underachiever," but the kitten nobody believed in quickly grew into a three-pound dynamo who scaled seven-foot bookcases, survived alone for days after 9/11 in an apartment near the World Trade Center, and even saved Gwen's life when he chased off a home intruder.

Even her cat sitting work is dwindling, and to add injury to insult, her harum-scarum kitty, Pancho, turns into a cat from hell rather than enter his carrier for a nail-cutting trip to the vet. The solution is to call in the professionals--the Village Cat People, a service for cat owners with problem pets. Unfortunately, a far bigger problem arrives when Martha, 'the Cat People representative, is murdered at Alice's front door. The police call it a mugging; Martha's coworkers call it an assassination. They want Alice, as a well-known amateur sleuth, to investigate. Alice prefers to put the tragedy behind her and move into a new loft apartment in Greenwich Village. But a second murder involving the Cat People gives her "paws." Now a clue linking the murders to a bohemian poet and the Village's vibrant past has her creating a risky trap to catch a killer. It will be a real work of art...or a colorful way to die." Millions of citizens live in New York City.

Cat on the Scent (Mrs. Murphy Mystery #7)

by Rita Mae Brown Sneaky Pie Brown

It takes a cat to write the purr-fect mystery. Things have been pretty exciting lately in Crozet, Virginia--a little too exciting if you ask resident feline investigator Mrs. Murphy.

No one's seen Tommy Van Allen's single-engine plane, either--except for Mrs. Murphy, who spotted it during a foggy evening's mousing.

And when Mrs. Murphy's relentless tracking places loved ones in danger, it takes more than a canny kitty and her team of animal sleuths to set things right again. . . .
