In 'Dogs Never Lie About Love', provocative psychoanalyst Jeffrey Masson brilliantly navigated the inner landscape of 'man's best friend'. Now he delves deep into the secretive, playful world of cats, revealing emotions, debunking myths, and honouring the feline's evolution from solitary jungle creature to human companion.
Drawing from literature, history, animal behavioural research, and the wonderful true stories of cat experts and cat lovers, Masson vividly explores the delights and mysteries of the feline heart. But at the core of this remarkable book are Masson's candid, often amusing observations of his own five cats. Their mischievousness, aloofness and affection provide a way to examine emotions from contentment to jealousy, from anger to love.
'The Nine Emotional Lives Of Cats' will capture readers with its surprises and insights, offering a new perspective on the deep connection shared by humans and their feline friends. This is the book that Masson's many fans and cat lovers everywhere have been waiting for.
