“The Cat Wore Electric Goggles” by Ian Hutson is an inspired, absurd, hilarious and witty selection of highly amusing short stories. Whether set in space or in the English Countryside, expect the unexpected and enjoy as the nonsensical makes oddly sense. It would be hard to pick a favourite story. I loved Captain Faraday and his cat in space, Mister Stringer and the consequences of choosing the proper water for his tea and the British attempt at travelling to the moon. All of them sparkle with ideas and originality, some louder than others, but all very entertaining. Hutson’s humour is great fun but it has a profound basis in English culture and human nature. It is light-hearted but behind the silliness there lies a mind capable of sharp and true observations. His ability with the English language is superb; his style is elegant, confident and magical. A truly excellent selection, highly recommended.
