Specially chosen, the pre-bedtime reading. There's a pile of books there, and not all make the cut. This one did though, and was purrfect to dream with!
Have just finished reading the three essays that make up this lovely little book. Isn't it strange how many authors are also cat lovers? Lessing uses her considerable literary skills to convey the relationship between cats and cats and cats and people.
According to the famous mathematical thought experiment, Schroedinger's cat is neither dead nor alive. So it's a cool concept if you don't like being locked into binaries. Not so good if you don't like being locked into a lethal booby-trapped box. And from the cat's point of view, there is no ambiguity at all.
