The Friday Book on Saturday.................
This week I (Merlin) am spolighting a book many of
you have probably heard of, Old Possum's Book of Practical
Cats, by non other than T S Eliot.
If you have seen the broadway show CATS, then
you have experienced T S Eliot's prose set to
A L Webber's music complete with prancing, dancing
cats all over the place.
However, I encourage you to read the poems as they were
written. You will be surprised at how rich and full they are
and the best edition is the one with illustrations by Edward
Gorey, because he understood cats.
The team of Eliot and Gorey shows cats like never before.
I think they are even better than Eliot and Webber, *gasp*.
Yes, you heard me correctly.
I love this book and read it often and in many, many places...
