Burt's Cat

When he heard I had written a cat book, Ace Atkins sent me this picture of Burt Reynolds and friend for the cover, and reminded me that Burt made a movie called SHAMUS which costarred the feline celebrity cat food icon Morris the Cat (not pictured here). Going to meet Ace at his office this evening for some gimlets because that's what Philip Marlowe and Terry Lennox drink in THE LONG GOODBYE. "Marlowe says they beat martinis hollow," Ace reminds me.
