The Trav­el­ling Cat Chron­i­cles

Indwe - - Books - By Hiro Arikawa

Nana is on a road trip, but he is not sure where he is go­ing. All that mat­ters is that he can sit be­side his beloved owner Sa­toru in the front seat of his sil­ver van. Sa­toru is keen to visit three old friends from his youth, though Nana doesn’t know why and Sa­toru won’t say. Set against the back­drop of Ja­pan’s chang­ing sea­sons and nar­rated with a rare gen­tle­ness and hu­mour, Nana’s story ex­plores the won­der and thrill of life’s un­ex­pected de­tours. It is about the value of friend­ship and soli­tude, and know­ing when to give and when to take.
