PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC The Autobiography of Foudini M. Cat Grace the Cat is not at all like me, as she is forever bent on mischief. But because I am an older and wiser cat, she looks to me for counsel, and so I have allowed Grace to prevail upon me to set down the story of my life as a housecat in the human world. . . .As the irrepressible Foudini M. Cat regales us with his adventures, an exciting story unfolds. After his valiant but frail mother leaves him in search for food and never returns, the starving kitten is taken, hissing and spitting, to a frightening room with cages and men in white coats. Facing the specter of eternal sleep, the homeless cat is adopted by a woman he later calls "Warm." ("All cats like to make up strange names for things.")From here Foudini enchants us with splendid tales of his unlikely but ultimately poignant friendship with Sam the Dog; their trips between Cold House in the city and Mouse House in the country; his mystical experiences with famous felines of the past; his near-death in a raging river that leads to a profound act of sacrifice; and his introduction to a silly young thing named Grace, which evolves into something completely unexpected.

"FASCINATING."
--San Francisco Chronicle
Doris Meek adored her twin sister, Florence. She was only too happy to play in her gifted sister's shadow. And there she remained. For when Florence disappeared at the height of her career as an artist, she had disavowed Doris.
The world thought the great Florence Meek was an orphan.
For twenty years this fact made searching for Florence a psychological impossibility. But now Doris wants to know. Why did Florence carve a life for herself from lies and half-truths? And as she seeks answers, Doris begins to solve the greatest mystery of all: her own identity. . . .
"Fromberg Schaeffer is a highly accomplished writer."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review
"In lush, romantic prose, Susan Fromberg Schaeffer uses the notion of twinship to explore the psychological predicament of coming to terms with one's identity, an exploration that takes the form of a quasi-mystery story."
--The Boston Globe, "Beautifully and gracefully written . . . delightful to read." The New York Times Book Review.
The breathtaking tale of two women -- legendary screen goddess Anna Asta and her trusted friend and housekeeper, Ivy Cook. Their youth long behind them, Anna and Ivy tell each other their stories, rearranging the events of the past, reevaluating them, until finally -- together -- they find the one story that lies beneath the apparently patternless chaos of their lives.
