She and Her Cat

by Makoto Shinkai and Naruki Nagakawa - £8.99  Transworld Publishers Ltd (2023)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781804993118 | ISBN 10: 1804993115

On the outskirts of Tokyo, in a neighbourhood crossed by a commuter railway, local cats weave their way through the lives and homes of their owners as they navigate difficult times.
 
A cat named Chobi sends silent messages of courage to a young woman, willing her to end a faltering relationship; a gifted artist fatally misunderstands her boss's enthusiasm for her paintings; a manga fan shuts herself away after the death of her friend, while her cat Cookie hatches a plan to persuade her outside; a woman who has dedicated her life to a distant husband learns a lesson in independence from her cat.
 
Against the urban backdrop of humming trains and private woes, She and Her Cat explores the gentle magic of the everyday. Populated by both the friendly and the feral, it reveals - with heartstopping clarity and warmth - how even in our darkest moments, community and connection may lead us to a happier place.
 
From the renowned film director of Your Name and written by Naruki Nagakawa
