The Find

‘Henri, le Chat Noir’ by William Braden

A silly cat book? Do I dare devote precious space to a silly cat book? Yet I smile and smirk every time I read a few passages in “Henri, le Chat Noir: The Existential Musings of an Angst-Filled Cat” (Ten Speed) by William Braden. Henri’s self-absorbed philosophizing is, well, precious. Thousands have enjoyed Braden's Henri videos on YouTube. Henri comes across just as well, if not better, in print. If you need an attitude adjustment, consider the tuxedo cat’s advice: “Every search for truth must begin somewhere. If mine begins on the couch, who are you to judge?”
