內容簡介

內容簡介 東京,世界的最大城市之一,一隻浪浪貓在後巷中穿梭。她的每次周遊總會撥動城市中人看似各自迥異的生活,以出乎意料的方式連結他們。城市正在改變,將她推向邊緣。她接連遇到易認的異鄉人:蹲在廢棄旅館前的街友、害怕踏出家門的宅男、尋找愛情的超商店員...浪浪貓繞著東京居民巡行,拉近人們的距離。作者以環環相扣的短篇故事串成小說。In Tokyo—, one of the world's largest megacities, —a stray cat is wending her way through the back alleys. 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. In a series of spellbinding, interlocking narratives—, with styles ranging from manga to footnotes—, Nick Bradley has hewn a novel of interplay and estrangement; of survival and self-destruction; of the desire to belong and the need to escape. Formally inventive and slyly political, The Cat and The City is a lithe thrill-ride through the less-glimpsed streets of Tokyo.
