|This is Lickety. (Some of you have met her before.) Lickety is a most
precocious cat. But does she really read Herodotus, who wrote about
the Greco-Persian wars? Lickety, can you tell us who won?
|Does she really read David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas (upside-down, no less)?
Lickety, what’s a genre?
|I would say that Lickety loves her people, her people love books,
and therefore, she snuggles up to her people, then wakes,
innocent and ignorant, to the books they’ve left behind…
|except that those are the eyes of a cat who has learned compassion.
Lickety, what’s life like in a Siberian prison camp?
|(Sunny, on the other hand, makes no pretense of being an intellectual.)|
