Another Insane Devotion

Another Insane Devotion On the Love of Cats and Persons TRACHTENBERG, Peter

From a genuine American Dostoevsky" ( The Washington Post ): a dazzling, funny, bittersweet exploration of the mysteries of relationship, both human and animal. When his favourite cat Biscuit goes missing, Peter Trachtenberg sets out to find her. The journey takes him 700 miles and many years into his past- into the history of his relationships with cats and the history of his relationship with his wife F., who may herself be on the verge of disappearing. What ensues is a work that recalls travel narratives from The Incredible Journey to W. G. Sebald's The Rings of Saturn. Trachtenberg ponders the mysteries of feline intelligence (why do cats score worse on some tests than pigeons?), the origins of their domestication, their terrible treatment during the Middle Ages. He also looks at the riddle of why any of us loves whom we love and all the unforeseen places to which that devotion leads us.
