Cat Tales: The Meaning of Cats in Women's Lives 
Jan Fook, Susan Hawthorne and Renate Klein (eds.) 

Cat Tales: The Meaning Of Cats In Women's Lives is a delightful collection of writing from women and girls all around the world, accompanied by beautiful photographs of their feline friends. There are cats of all colours and sizes - from the city, the farm, the bush; cats who can open fridges, sign contracts, and cats-in-drag. They get stuck in strange places and survive amazing ordeals. Some disappear only to return mysteriously; others live on as most treasured memories. They entertain, amuse, frustrate and delight us; they tug at our hearts and offer insight into our lives. A sister volume to the internationally successful A Girl's Best Friend, this book explores the relationships between women and their cats- or more aptly, cats and their women.

HorseDreams: The Meaning of Horses in Women's Lives 
Jan Fook, Susan Hawthorne and Renate Klein (eds.) 

HorseDreams explores the beautiful, intense and often funny relationships between women and horses – creatures that carry their female friends through life, offering strong, silent companionship, and the chance to escape, if only in their imagination. Humour, devotion, warmth and enthusiasm shine through tales of scruffy childhood ponies, sleek brave thoroughbreds and even the occasional donkey, seahorse or carousel steed. Read more.
