Tuesday Book Club with Andrew Pople: If Cats Disappeared From The World by Genki Kawamura
What would you give up to save your life? Drinking? Smoking?
What if the thing you chose to give up was erased from the world and no one could ever do or use it again?
This is the question that the central character in Genki Kawamura’s debut novel “If Cats Disappeared From The World” has to contend with when he is diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. A quick visit from the Devil establishes that he can extend his life for one day by every item he erases from the world.
Andrew and Tess discuss this intriguing novel and whether books can make us more introspective on this edition of “Tuesday Book Club”.
