'A love letter to Japan and its literature' Rowan Hisayo Buchanan

'Ingenious... Touching, surprising and sometimes heartbreaking' Guardian

'An ideal tonic for anyone craving far-flung adventure' Mail on Sunday

'If you're itching to read a new novel by David Mitchell...try this' The Times


In Tokyo - one of the world's largest megacities - a stray cat is wending her way through the back alleys. And, 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.

'Masterfully weaves together seemingly disparate threads to conjure up a vivid tapestry of Tokyo; its glory, its shame, its characters, and a calico cat.' David Peace, author of THE TOKYO TRILOGY

One of the Independent's best debuts

Longlisted for the DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD, 2021

Nick Bradley's ingenious choreography of a constantly moving city, is touching, surprising and sometimes heartbreaking. ― Guardian

The key pleasure of reading this book is its sprightly vigour - cool but not hipsterish, ambitious but not pretentious - that evokes a similar liveliness in the reader. It makes you feel young again. ― John Self, The Times

Inventive, beguiling. ― Sunday Times

An ideal tonic for anyone craving far-flung adventure. ― Mail on Sunday

Intriguing...explores the dark underbelly of Japan. ― Independent

I wolfed down these interlocking stories of cats, Tokyo, loneliness and redemption. Congratulations to Nick Bradley on this vibrant and accomplished debut. ― David Mitchell, via Twitter

The Cat and The City is a love letter to Japan and its literature. Bradley's passion for everything from onigiri to Tanizaki's short stories is woven into this book. Bradley was for a time an ex-pat and his insight into their perching state is particularly intriguing. He is also very clearly a man with a great tenderness for cats. ― Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, author of HARMLESS LIKE YOU

In a very impressive, finely observed debut, Nick Bradley masterfully weaves together seemingly disparate threads to conjure up a vivid tapestry of Tokyo; its glory, its shame, its characters, and a calico cat. ― David Peace, author of THE TOKYO TRILOGY

An inventive, clever and beguiling read. With Tokyo as the backdrop, this is a beautifully written novel about belonging and loneliness, about escape and destruction, where the enmeshed narratives (and a magical cat) bind the city together. ― Elizabeth Macneal, author of THE DOLL FACTORY

Like the street cat that slinks through this, Nick Bradley is endlessly resourceful, full of invention, full of surprises. ― Andrew Cowan, author of PIG
