The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide Book, 125 g
A poetic and moving commentary on the nature of life and how we individually handle its changes, The Guest Cat is a Kiyama Shohei Literary Award-winning novel that delivers a subtle yet beautiful tale of a feline guest to a Japanese guesthouse in the late 80's. Rented by a loveless couple of freelance writers in their thirties, the arrival of a cat to their kitchen one day sparks a beautifully curious change, as the cat visits daily bringing small joys and conversation back to the couple's distant lives.
A French and American bestseller, also featured by The Sunday Times, this novella offers a charming and profound observation of life's simple wonders through Takashi Hiraide's wonderfully descriptive poetry, touching on the people, locations, animals and things we encounter in our lives and how they impact our own way of living.
Written by Takashi Hiraide. Paperback, 144 pages.
