Many thanks to the writers behind Harper Perennial's fabulous blog, the Olive Reader, for introducing me to "Writers and Kitties," a Tumblr feed celebrating the time-honored bond between writers and their whiskered sidekicks. (The photos are wonderful; the captions are treasures in themselves.) Highlights:
William S. Burroughs.
Also included in the same Olive Reader post, and equally worthy of acknowledgment: writers and their dogs, as captured by Jill Krementz. I love this one, of E.L. Doctorow and pal Becky, taking a dip.
