    A BBC Radio 2 Book Club Pick. 

    'Ingenious ... touching, surprising and sometimes heartbreaking.' Guardian
    'If you're itching to read a new novel by David Mitchell ... try this.' The Times

    In Tokyo - one of the world's largest megacities - a stray cat is wending her way through the back alleys. And, with each detour, she brushes up against the seemingly disparate lives of the city-dwellers, connecting them in unexpected ways.

    But the city is changing. As it does, it pushes her to the margins where she chances upon a series of apparent strangers - from a homeless man squatting in an abandoned hotel, to a shut-in hermit afraid to leave his house, to a convenience store worker searching for love.  The cat orbits Tokyo's denizens, drawing them ever closer. 

    Paperback, 304 pages. 

    Size: 19.7 x 12.9 x 2.5cm
