CAT DREAMING: A STORY OF FRIENDSHIPS AND SECOND CHANCES
by Stephanie Schorow
In the era of big hair, massive shoulder pads, Reaganomics and Madonna, four newspaper women are desperately seeking success. Maureen, Tina, Elektra, and Sarah bond over their love of newswriting and cats but learn female friendships can be as tricky to navigate as love affairs. When Sarah slips into unconsciousness after an accident, her friends resort to feline subterfuge to wake her from the state they call "cat dreaming." Cat Dreaming: A Story of Friendships and Second Chances explores the events that brought the friends together and the changes that could pull them apart - unless they accept the faults in each other and in themselves.
Inspired by her years in the trenches of journalism at the Boston Herald, the Stamford Advocate and the Associated Press, author Stephanie Schorow takes readers on a wickedly funny and fantastical romp through the 1980s, seeking to answer the question: Why are women often their own worst enemies?
