James Joyce Loved ….. Cats [Good Article]

9 Nov

Loved cats. Not so sure about Danes.

Why do cats rule the Internet? Probably because people who love to write also inexplicably love cats.  Likewise, cats love to write (or they would if they could.  They certainly love keyboards.)

The UHP of course, takes every opportunity to use pictures of cats online — but did you know that some pretty famous writers share our infatuation?

Turns out that James Joyce wrote a charming letter to his grandson in 1936 that has recently been published as a short story.  Guess what the story features prominently: cats.

Check out the full article over at BrainPickings to read more about it, and see the whimsical illustrations that accompany the story.
