The book will take an intimate look into the lives of over 45 highly esteemed poets, novelists and journalists from around the world, and their close relationships with cats.
Alison Nastasi’s Writers and their Cats will look at highly successful writers from past and present, including the likes of Haruki Murakami, Alice Walker and Mark Twain.
Writers and their Cats will detail the works of each writer and how their feline friends have contributed to their creative processes and overall wellbeing.
The subjects recount how their pets have either provided security, acted as a means of inspiration or allowed their owners to open up with newfound vulnerability in their writing.

Writers and their Cats will also feature important change makers including social and political activist Gloria Steinem, and beloved graphic novelist Neil Gaiman. Charles Bukowski’s regular muse, his one-eared tomcat, Butch Van Gogh Artaud Bukowski, will also feature in the novel.
