When Ralph Steadman visited his friend Hunter S. Thompson in Woody Creek, Colorado, he fell completely under the spell of Hunter's cat, Jones. He decided to buy a brand new sketchbook, and this book is the result. Jones was a master of manipulation, full of manic energy. When he wanted something he could be imploring, yet enviably serene when absorbed in his private world. When content, his fur would swell impressibly from his cheeks, but if crossed, a swift and savage claw put the offender in his place. These drawings bring Jones vividly to life. His anarchic sense of fun mirrored Steadman's own, leading to an extraordinary and intimate understanding between them. In this book Steadman has caught the special grace cats have, and the strange power they have over humans.
