Paperback 937: Death of a Stray Cat / Jean Potts (Berkley G492)

Paperback 937: Berkley Medallion G492 (1st ptg, 1961)

Title: Death of a Stray Cat
Author: Jean Potts
Cover artist: photo cover

Estimated value: $10-15 (condition: purrrfect) (sorrynotsorry)

Best things about this cover:
  • Alas, poor Yorick! I knew him, kitty kitty.
  • I love how her chair is so dark you can't really see it, so it looks like she's kind of shimmying and dancing toward you in some kind of gothic version of The Twist. Let's call it the "Stray Cat Strut" (stillnotsorry!)
  • What do you call that hairstyle, where it's a bouffant but with a kind of sinkhole up front? It's pretty glorious.

Best things about this back cover:
  • Ooh, his and hers panting! You shouldn't have.
  • Uh, safe word. We need a safe word up in here. Stat!
  • Hmm, never heard of Jean Potts, or "Go, Lovely Rose," or this book. Anyone know if I'm missing anything?

"We gagged him because he kept talking dirty," said Gen.

Air guitar is for poseurs. Ms. Red Dress prefers air keyboard.

She's a hoarse whimperer.
