The Cat Who Could Read Backwards (Cat Who…, #1)

 

 

 

 

Lilian Jackson Braun was an American writer. She is well-known for her light-hearted series of The Cat Who… mystery novels. The Cat Who books center around the life of former newspaper reporter James Qwilleran, and his two Siamese cats, KoKo and Yum Yum in the fictitious small town of Pickax located in Moose County, “400 miles north of everywhere.” Although never formally stated in the books, the towns, counties and lifestyles described in the series are generally accepted to be a modeled after Bad Axe, Michigan (located in the “Michigan Thumb”) where she resided with her husband for many years until the mid 1980’s. Many also believe that the culture and history of the Upper peninsula of Michigan are represented in the series as well, which is quite possible as it is indeed a fictitious location.
