Cat's Cradle by Kurt Vonnegut Summary
“A free-wheeling vehicle . . . an unforgettable ride!”—The New York Times Cat’s Cradle is Kurt Vonnegut’s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet’s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist, a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer, and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat’s Cradle is one of the twentieth century’s most important works—and Vonnegut at his very best. “[Vonnegut is] an unimitative and inimitable social satirist.”—Harper’s Magazine “Our finest black-humorist . . . We laugh in self-defense.”—Atlantic Monthly
Cat's Cradle by William W. Johnstone Summary
No one knew where she had come from. A scrap of a girl clinging to a black cat with eerie yellow eyes. A lost child or an orphan, maybe. It was a miracle she had survived on Eden Mountain at all. Suddenly strange things began to happen in placid Ruger County, bizarre killings that the police couldn’t solve. Horrifying accidents that the people couldn’t comprehend. An insatiable beast was stalking their intimate hideaways, their swimming holes—and their children. No one noticed how quickly the little girl’s pale cheeks turned pink with health. How her frail body filled out with sleek, lithe muscles and feline grace. And no one noticed that at night her innocent blue eyes turned an eerie, evil yellow . . .

Cat's Cradle by Julia Golding Summary
Here we present the sixth, brand new volume from our famous feisty heroine Cat Royal. In which Cat Royal spins a tale about the search for her family, weaving in friends and foes, old and new. Her journey takes her from riotous London to a revolutionary cotton mill on the River Clyde in Scotland. And a mysterious newcomer is introduced. So take your seats, ladies and gentlemen: the Industrial Age has arrived. Cat says: Back on home soil I have barely laid eyes on Drury Lane before my world is turned upside down and I am forced to leave once again. As an orphan I never had the chance to meet my mother, but when news of my lost family reaches me from Scotland I must head north for the border. My friends in London have always been beside me, but this is one task I must face alone!'
CAT'S CRADLE by Renate Model Summary
Poetry is my link to all of life. It is the sea in my body, the touch of people, even those I don’t know, the wonder of place. Each poem is a deeper breath, and I am grateful for it. I love words. They glisten like shattered glass, like glass splinters, they have the power to wound. I steal time from a demanding law practice to write, photograph, tend my family, my garden and four rascally dachshunds. “The first time I read Renate Model’s poems was when we both were on a Riverboat cruise down the Mississippi. I was pleasantly surprised to find such beautiful poetry in such a romantic setting. Renate’s poetry is beautifully laid out with evocative imagery that reflects on love and loss. Renate is a poet who wants to be understood and as such is approachable. Her poems are musical and yet, not singing. They flow like lilac honey, yet they are also bittersweet like an old photograph. You should read her poetry – it is like experiencing an “orchid-eyed Zebra.” Dave Duggan, [email protected] “Renate Model’s robust imagery and compelling juxtaposition of phrase create a riveting atmosphere, drawing the reader in to share fully in the emotion evoked in each of her poems.” Gerard Belliveau, Assistant Chief Librarian for General Research, New York Public Library, (retired)
