A beautifully moving tale of loss and reaching out to the ones we love, of one man’s journey to discover what really matters in modern life.

Our narrator’s days are numbered. Estranged from his family, living alone with only his cat Cabbage for company, he was unprepared for the doctor’s diagnosis that he has only months to live. But before he can set about tackling his bucket list, the Devil appears with a special offer: in exchange for making one thing in the world disappear, he can have one extra day of life. And so begins a very bizarre week . . .

Because how do you decide what makes life worth living? How do you separate out what you can do without from what you hold dear? In dealing with the Devil our narrator will take himself – and his beloved cat – to the brink. Genki Kawamura's If Cats Disappeared from the World is a story of loss and reconciliation, of one man’s journey to discover what really matters in modern life.

This beautiful tale is translated from the Japanese by Eric Selland, who also translated The Guest Cat by Takashi Hiraide. Fans of The Guest Cat and The Travelling Cat Chronicles will also surely love If Cats Disappeared from the World.

Review:

A warm, quirky novel on life, love, family estrangement and what remains when we are gone with a surprising emotional charge., Observer

If you're a fan of The Guest Cat (or even just cats generally), you'll love this., Sunday Times #StyleReads

This brief existential enquiry into life’s priorities is gently charming., The Skinny

A moral tale., The Express

A poignant, affecting story about facing up to one's mortality, taking responsibility for one's choices and deciding what truly holds value., The Herald

Reminiscent of Johnathan Livingston Seagull, this was a quick read – it only took me a few hours – but it will stay with you long after you finish it., My Weekly

Book Description:

A million-copy bestseller, a poignant and thought-provoking Japanese tale that asks what it really is that makes life worth living.
