The term Cat Lady can evoke the image of an unfashionable, unkempt and slightly unhinged spinster hoarding multiple cats. Cat Lady Chic serves as an antidote to this unflattering point of view. This small, gift book celebrates the Cat Lady with a compilation of artful, playful and sophisticated images of some of the most renowned, beautiful and accomplished women in modern history with the cats they love. The volume features a sharp, funny introductory essay on the Cat Lady conundrum along with scores of photographs of felines paired with famous feline fans across a spectrum of backgrounds, including figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Georgia O'Keeffe, Nina Simone, Marilyn Monroe, Zelda Fitzgerald, Lana DelRey, Lauren Bacall, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly and more. There are also a few fine art representations from the 19th and 20th centuries, placed throughout.

Mexico has the most misunderstood, underrated, underrepresented cuisine on earth. It is far, far older, deeper, richer and more sophisticated than most who claim to love it know. It's a large and varied, distinctly regional cuisine - like China or Italy have - and right now, one of the fastest growing, most exciting and progressive areas of the modern food scene. It's where the action is. Paul Wilson brings it all home. Brilliantly. A little time, a little love, you too can get it right. - Anthony Bourdain, chef, author and TV presenter
