Tall Tail Books, 130 pages
Tagged as a sure winner for a prize in the Biography category at the upcoming Feline Fiction Fest (14-17 Karpos), this book tells the moving story of Albert, a Cat who was abandoned by his Human protector and forced to live on the streets outside The Park.
As told by his friend, Digby, Albert evolves from a mean-spirited to an affectionate, trusting specimen of Felinity until the fateful night when he is struck by a car and left to die by the side of the road. Digby’s book, then, becomes not only a poignant memoir of a unique friendship, but an indictment of the world outside The Park.
