About the book
Thirty-seven-year-old Samuel de Juan goes to bed on New Year’s Eve inexplicably comforted by the realization that his life is more or less half over and the impending year will hold nothing new for him. Fortunately for Samuel, he has not one iota of how wrong he is.
The next morning, Samuel is spurred off the couch by an odd scratching noise at his door. To his bewilderment, a stray cat is purring at his mat. Reluctantly, Samuel pours the cat a saucer of milk—a serendipitous decision that would forever change Samuel’s life. Mishima, as he comes to be named, leads Samuel from the comforts of his favorite books, foreign films, and classical music to place he’s never been, like next door, and to people he might never have met, like Titus, his enigmatic but affable neighbor. Even better, Mishima leads Samuel to mysterious Gabriela, whom he thought he’d never see again. As Samuel’s childhood love is reignited and unexpected relationships develop with fellow word-lovers, the secluded world that he has built around himself slowly opens up. And thanks to a persistent cat, Samuel awakens to the importance of the little things in life, and discovers that sometimes love is hiding in the smallest characters.
