Making The Cat Laugh Summary

Making The Cat Laugh: One Woman's Journal of Single Life on the Margins by Lynne Truss

One woman's journal of single life on the margins. For seven long years, starting in The Listener in 1988 and continuing in The Times and Woman's Journal, Lynne Truss has been trying to make her cat laugh. It has been an uphill task, which is why she deserves this book, a recognition of outstanding courage in the face of futility. Along the way, 'Margins', 'Single of Life' and 'One Woman's Journal' have collected a band of devoted fans, yet still the cat remains unimpressed, we understand he may not even show up at the launch party. Never have so many jokes about Kitbits been found in such concentration as in Making the Cat Laugh. But under the headings such as 'The Single Woman Considers Going Out but Doesn't Fancy the Hassle' and 'The Single Woman Stays at Home and Goes Quietly Mad', we discover a writer not only obsessed with cats, but prone to over-reacting generally - to news stories (MAN 'EATEN' IN GRUESOME CAT HORROR) shopping, passive smoking, Christmas, coupledom, boyfriends, snails, sheds, Andre Agassi, cooking instructions, requests of 'How's the novel going?' and personal remarks of any kind.

Making The Cat Laugh Reviews

'A small masterpiece of comedy... with abundant close observation, the familiar is made fresh... A continual hoot.' - The Times 'Trenchant writing, invigorating valour, and a shrewdly observant wit.' - Scotland on Sunday
