Product description

Review

The Guest Cat is a rare treasure . . . beautiful and profound . . . whether you're a cat lover or not, don't pass this one up (NPR)

This is a gentle, thoughtful and subtly profound work . . . It's the kind of work that makes you ask of its author: "How on earth did he do that?" as you find yourself dabbing your eyes and pausing to look wistfully into the distance . . . You will want to read The Guest Cat more than once, so you notice more details - seeing as you can't do this with life (Nicholas Lezard's Paperback of the Week Guardian)

The language and descriptions are careful, elegant and lovely; while Hiraide's book is ostensibly about a cat, it is more precisely about space and ownership. The book renders an unusually intimate, detailed and vivid picture of a place that is simultaneously private and open. (New York Times)

Lyrical and captivating . . . I will revisit The Guest Cat with pleasure, much as I return to favourite poems and paintings and memories (Huffington Post)

A book genuinely worthy of bestseller status (Independent)

This moving novel is a treat for felinophiles (Guardian)

This is a charming, thoughtful little meditation on the transience of life (Summer Book Club, S Magzine)

Book Description

An international bestseller. A charming and wonderful novel about a cat that brings joy into a couple's life.
