The Guest Cat

by Takashi Hiraide
£7.99   paperback  Pan Macmillan (Picador) (2014)

The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide An international bestseller. A charming and wonderful novel about a cat that brings joy into a couple's life.
 
The New York Times bestseller.
 
A couple in their thirties live in a small rented cottage in a quiet part of Tokyo. They work at home as freelance writers. They no longer have very much to say to one another.
 
One day a cat invites itself into their small kitchen. She is a beautiful creature. She leaves, but the next day comes again, and then again and again. New, small joys accompany the cat; the days have more light and colour. Life suddenly seems to have more promise for the husband and wife; they go walking together, talk and share stories of the cat and its little ways, play in the nearby Garden. But then something happens that will change everything again.
 
The Guest Cat is an exceptionally moving and beautiful novel about the nature of life and the way it feels to live it. The book won Japan's Kiyama Shohei Literary Award, and was a bestseller in France and America.
