A brilliant new edition of Nietzsche's seminal classic, intelligible to the common housecat.


This book is an art object, containing tens of thousands of repetitions of the word "meow." 

Publisher's description: 

No clearer articulation of Nietzsche’s radical and long-misunderstood philosophy is to be found than in this lucid translation by celebrated feline linguist Sam Austen. The Meow Library’s painstakingly crafted rendition of this classic text shatters the boundaries of human language and gives revolutionary expression to Nietzsche’s declaration that “Man is a rope, fastened between animal and the Übermench” by rendering every word of Thus Spoke Zarathustra as a piercing “meow.”


Human readers will bemoan their inability to grasp that which is perfectly comprehensible to the common housecat, while literate felines will quickly navigate the most delicate parameters of Nietzsche’s transcendent prose-poem, gaining yet another advantage over their blundering and self-deluded human masters. Armed with Zarathustra’s vast stores of insight, your cat may, at long last, loop Nietzsche’s rope back to its point of origin, thereby meow meow meow MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW meow meow meow meow, meow meow MEOW MEOW MEOW.

Thus Spoke Zarathustra (For Your Cat)
