A Cat Abroad (biographical) The same book has been published under For The Love of Norton.

There are only three things a cat needs for a fine life – good food, a comfortable bed, and universal praise and love. Luckily – after converting his human, Peter, from confirmed cat hater to cat lover supreme – Norton has plenty of all three. And they're about to get better, as his Peter and girlfriend Janice decide to up sticks and spend a year in rural France.

Norton in Provence is like – well – the cat who'd got the cream, whether he is hunting for mice in the rambling garden, hanging out with the local stray cats in the sun-drenched town square or being treated to delicacies from the chef in fine restaurants. And with Norton by his side, Peter finds that his new Gallic neighbours welcome their English-speaking guests with open arms.

Over the course of the year, Peter learns how to sit back, relax and enjoy the pleasures of a simple life. In A Cat Called Norton, the eponymous cat taught Peter how to love. Now, in For the Love of Norton, he teaches Peter and his girlfriend what it is to truly live.

Author Biography

In addition to being the internationally bestselling chronicler of the world's cutest cat (now published by Ebury as A Cat Called Norton, For the Love of Norton and the forthcoming Forever Norton), Peter Gethers has written two novels and, using the pseudonym Russell Andrews, five bestselling thrillers. In his spare time, he is a book editor and runs a film company.
