Re-read. A little dated, more than a little twee but still a sweet paean to the cat in general, Nichols' cats in particular. Read full review

About the author (2003)

Beverley Nichols (1898-1983) was a prolific writer on subjects ranging from religion to politics and travel, in addition to authoring six novels, five detective mysteries, four children's stories, six autobiographies, and six plays. He is perhaps best remembered today for his gardening books. The first of them, "Down the Garden Path, " centered on his home and garden at Glatton and has been in print almost continuously since 1932. "Merry Hall" (1951) and its sequels "Laughter on the Stairs" (1953) and "Sunlight on the Lawn" (1956) document Nichols' travails in renovating a Georgian mansion and its gardens soon after the war. His final garden was at Sudbrook Cottage, which serves as the setting for "Garden Open Today" (1963) and "Garden Open Tomorrow" (1968). The progress of all three gardens was followed avidly by readers of his books and weekly magazine columns.
