Tracing the cat in Copenhagen....27 décembre 2000

I found this a very charming book. The mild scholar Lucas Fysst goes on a researchtrip to Copenhagen and is joined by his companion, the philosopher cat, Thomas Grey. Together they explore various libraries and archives in order to unearth a story by H C Andersen dealing positively with cats. The local colour is very good, I know as I happen to live in Copenhagen! And as I work at the Royal Library I find the descriptions of the house and its personel very amusing - and quite accurate... The author mixes fact, fiction and detective story elements in an entertaining way, he is a very witty and learned person who spices his concoction with bemused commentaries on this science and that philosopher... The illustrations are absolutely congenial and as a whole it is a very good-looking volume. I'd like to warmly recommend this book to anyone who is fond of cats, H C Andersen, Copenhagen and philosophising!
