You often hear stories of people seeking out and ﬁnding a beloved pet. Maybe through a shelter or a rescue group. In Ralph Rahm's moving memoir, The Story of Marquis, fate reverses itself and it is the pet who seeks out the owner. And he's a special pet, indeed. In graceful, lucid prose, Rahm tells a simple story about the bond between a man and his cat that touches on more complex themes: the profound connections between animals and people, and the magical underside of everyday life. It is a beautiful portrait of friendship and a meaningful look at life itself. A lovely, graceful, touching book. -Lauren MacIntyre, New Yorker contributor
