“What the Cat Dragged In is a collection of the funny and sad, delightful and profound. Each piece leaves us with the vibrations of this stunningly witty author, through whom it passed. Accolades, Ms. Stephenson, a standing ovation. I’ve read each one, over and over — and here I go again.”—Carolyn Wall, author of Sweeping Up Glass and Playing with Matches.
