"The cats out of the bag -- a delightful book on all things feline
that no cat lover can afford to miss. Following in the paw prints of
Planet Dog, here is the cats meow: a lively, entertaining,
one-of-a-kind assemblage of more than 400 lists on all things cat. Its
all here, from the origins of the species to care and training to
breeds and behavior to famous cats in history, art, and literature."

We have a small number of review copies so if you're interested and
have a US address, send an email to inkwell@well.com and we'll send the
first lucky few a copy.

On November 26, Gary Greenberg will join us for a discussion of his
latest book "The Noble Lie: when scientists give the right answers for
the wrong reasons." From the publisher's description:

"Is drug addiction really a disease? Is sexuality inborn and fixed or
mutable? Science is where we often turn when we can't achieve moral
clarity. In The Noble Lie, acclaimed and controversial science writer
Gary Greenberg shows how scientists try to use their findings to
resolve the dilemmas raised by some of the most hotly contested issues
of our time, from gay rights to euthanasia and the drug war. He reveals
how their answers often turn out to be more fiction than science—and
explores whether they cause more harm than good."

We have a limited number of copies of the book for those interested in
reading it and joining the conversation. If you'd like to participate,
email inkwell@well.com and include your snail mail address.
