As readers of The Dalai Lama’s Cat will know, I am a big fan of the author F. Scott Fitzgerald - and more specifically his novel The Great Gatsby. There are a number of allusions to this in The Dalai Lama’s Cat – so much so that one blogger entitled his review ‘The Great Catsby,’ which I found very amusing. (There is a subtle allusion to a character from Gatsby in The Art of Purring. It’s early days, but so far no one has put their hand up on that one. No doubt, some sharp-eyed reader soon will).
I am pleased to be sharing the prologue and first chapter of The Art of Purring. If you'd like to see more updates, blogs and vlogs about this and other books I am working on, please click the 'Follow' button at the bottom of this page on the right hand side.
