MY BELOVED MONSTER Masha, the Half-Wild Rescue Cat Who Rescued Me

by | Read by James Lurie

Biography & Memoir • 13.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

James Lurie shares the joyous and painful moments of an extraordinary life. Listeners meet Caleb Carr, the late author of the wildly successful novel THE ALIENIST, and his great love, Masha, a Siberian forest cat. Carr's father, Lucien, was a cofounder of the Beat Generation. Caleb suffered emotional and physical abuse from his alcoholic parents. Lurie movingly recounts Caleb's chaotic early life and the spirited cats that saved him. Listeners rejoice when he rescues majestic Masha, who was also abused by her so-called "family." Caleb and Masha "promise" each other to always be together as they age and become ill. Lurie's voice takes on a generous tone as Caleb provides suggestions for other cat owners based on his comprehensive knowledge. Audio highlights their unique bond.
