Publisher's Summary

A romantic comedy for language lovers and fans of The Rosie Project, about a brainy bachelor and the cat that opens his eyes to life's little pleasures.

When Samuel, a lonely linguistics lecturer, wakes up on New Year's Day, he is convinced that the year ahead will bring nothing more than passive verbs and unitalicized moments - until an unexpected visitor slips into his Barcelona apartment and refuses to leave. The appearance of Mishima, a stray brindle-furred cat, becomes the catalyst that leads Samuel from the comforts of his favorite books, foreign films, and classical music to places he's never been (next door) and to people he might never have met (a neighbor with whom he's never exchanged a word). Even better, the Catalan cat leads him back to the mysterious Gabriela, whom he thought he'd lost long before, and shows him, in this international best seller for fans of The Rosie Project, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, and The Guest Cat, that sometimes love is hiding in the smallest characters.

What the Critics Say

"A delightfully absurd, life-affirming celebration. I literally stood up and cheered as I read the last page." (Matthew Quick, author of The Silver Linings Playbook)

    Story
    "Elegance of the Hedgehog with a Happier Ending"

    I had to double check the name of the author of this book since I was reminded of 'The Elegance of the Hedgehog' so strongly. There were enough literary and musical references to make my head spin combined with engaging characters but a softer less cynical tone and ending than 'The E of the H". Maybe a little too neat and easy of a wrap up at the end but I would still recommend this book.
