Rita Mae Brown's first memory is the sound of a deep, rumbling purr. From the cat that slept in her cradle to the horses, hounds, cats, and chickens who live on her Virginia farm today, Brown has always been surrounded by animals.
Listeners will meet Mickey, a long-haired tiger cat who joined Rita Mae on childhood exploits; Franklin, her grandmother's parrot with a wicked sense of humor; R.C., a courageous and devoted Doberman who was killed by a pack of coyotes; Baby Jesus, a tiger cat from New York City with sharp teeth to match his attitude; and, of course, her beloved tiger cat Sneaky Pie.
Animal Magnetism is a celebration of these wonderful creatures and of their remarkable capacity to enrich our lives and our hearts.

"Animal lovers and fans of author Rita Mae Brown will enjoy this book, which looks at the author's life and her love of animals, as well as the lessons she learned from them. It starts with a pet cat and the earliest dogs she knew and goes from there, with special emphasis on foxes. The theme probably is best captured in her line: "There's no such thing as a dumb dog, but God knows there are continents filled with dumb humans." Karen White offers an amiable and effective reading, adding just a hint of a northern Virginia accent on occasion. She hasn't narrated any of Brown's Mrs. Murphy mysteries, so there's no mixing up her voice with that of narrator Kate Forbes. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
