"Slices of personal life, anecdotes and memories of some of the greatest contemporary Japanese writers together with their inseparable feline companions." This is what you will discover in " To every cat its author: Cats and writers in contemporary Japan ".
Tenoha is pleased to invite you to the presentation of the book with the author Fabiola Palmeri. The appointment is set for Monday 12 June at 18:00 at the co-working space in Via Vigevano 18, Milan.
Inspired by the professor's unnamed cat in Natsume Sōseki's "I am a cat", the author takes us on a fascinating journey through the lives of some of today's most renowned Japanese writers, exploring their intimate and passionate relationship with cats.
We wonder: how many wonderful contemporary novels would have been written if the authors hadn't loved their feline friends? Probably few, if we are to believe Fabiola Palmeri. In Japanese novels, cats have always occupied a central role, often becoming prominent characters. From Murakami Haruki to Kawamura Genki, from Morishita Noriko to Kakuta Mitsuyo, passing through Arikawa Hiro, Natsukawa Sōsuke and Mukai Kōsuke, the union between cats and writers has given life to a creative partnership with a unique charm.
If you are curious to discover all the peculiarities of this extraordinary relationship, you cannot miss the copy-signing event with Fabiola Palmeri. This documented and original volume will reveal the secrets of a fascinating bond between the great Japanese authors and their feline friends.
Don't forget to bring your own copy of the book or buy one on site so you can have it signed by the author.
We await you with enthusiasm!
Free admission without reservation.
