The Ballad of Peckham Rye (Paperback)
The Ballad of Peckham Rye is the wickedly farcical fable of a blue-collar town turned upside down. When the firm of Meadows, Meade & Grindley hires Dougal Douglas to do "human research" into the private lives of its workforce, they are in no way prepared for the mayhem, mutiny, and murder he will stir up. "Not only funny but startlingly original," declared The Washington Post, "the legendary character of Dougal Douglas . . . may not have been boasting when he referred so blithely to his association with the devil."
While I never got to meet the real-life inspiration for this book, Fuddles has an ideal cat life. At least for a non-bookstore cat. Fun adventure and family book. - Pippi, bookstore cat
