By turns poignant and electrifying, Michael Ondaatje’s The Cat’s Table is a spellbinding story about the magical, often forbidden, discoveries of childhood, and a lifelong journey that begins unexpectedly with a spectacular sea voyage. Set in the early 1950s, it’s the story of an eleven-year-old boy’s journey across the Indian Ocean. In honor of the book’s paperback publication, we’re giving away copies of The Cat’s Table and a set of Ondaatje paperbacks.
The New York Times Book Review called The Cat’s Table “Mesmerizing,” and commented, “As he did in his great novel, The English Patient, Ondaatje conjures images that pull strangers into the vivid rooms of his imagination, their detail illumined by his words.” Added Aleksandar Hemon on WSJ.com: “For my money, Michael Ondaatje is the greatest living writer in the English language…. The wide-eyed love of the world and its wonders, the kindness he offers to his characters and readers, the elegant lyricism of his sentences, the joy of storytelling—all that is great in his other books is fully present in The Cat’s Table…. Mr. Ondaatje restores belief in the beauty and power of literature and, by extension, of humanity.”
