The Book of Evil
from the back cover:
I introduced my cat to my principal. He was unimpressed. Moms worried I may be obsessed with cats. Ive explained to her its not cats in general but Snickers and its not an obsession but a meaningful and rewarding friendship. He likes to sit in my basket and ride my bike with me. She says its the neighbors cat and we have an unhealthy relationship. I know Im going to outlive him and it hurts to think about it. I created a world I wanted Snickers to believe in but I also believe in that world. Sometimes I imagine him on his own chasing birds in a field. It rains and he finds a barn to sleep inside. If he were alone long enough, would he come looking for me? Ill never forget when we met. I could hear his cries from the neighbors apartment, so I slipped him a note under the door. Hi, it said. Im your neighbor, and I like you.
