Justin Dobbs has just published a new story, “a boy a cat,” on the blog, A Boy, A Cat, A Lifeboat. The blog is a series of short stories based on the public domain idea of a boy, a wild cat, and a boy stuck in a lifeboat. This ancient idea already been used in several novels including the modestly successful Max and the Cats by Moacyr Scliar.
A young, winning boy, he liked to curl up in front of the mayor’s fireplace with the black tiger who had wandered into the house after a tea party. — Justin Dobbs
