A feel-good novel for fans of A Man Called Ove and The Rosie Project, about an eccentric, language-loving bachelor and the cat that opens his eyes to life’s little pleasures

The Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick:
“A delightfully absurd, life-affirming celebration. I literally stood up and cheered as I read the last page.”


When Samuel, a lonely linguistics lecturer, wakes up on New Year’s Day, he is convinced that the year ahead will bring nothing more than passive verbs and un-italicized moments—until an unexpected visitor slips into his Barcelona apartment and refuses to leave. The appearance of Mishima, a stray, brindle-furred cat, becomes the catalyst that leads Samuel from the comforts of his favorite books, foreign films, and classical music to places he’s never been (next door) and to people he might never have met (a neighbor with whom he’s never exchanged a word). Even better, the Catalan cat leads him back to the mysterious Gabriela, whom he thought he’d lost long before, and shows him, in this international bestseller for fans of The Rosie Project, The Solitude of Prime Numbers, and A Man Called Ove, that sometimes love is hiding in the smallest characters.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A delightfully absurd, life-affirming celebration. I literally stood up and cheered as I read the last page.”

    Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author

  • “In this little fable, an international bestseller available in eighteen languages, a cat sneaks into the Barcelona apartment of forlorn linguistics professor Samuel and eventually leads him to his neighbors and his long-lost Gabriela. You’ve gotta love a book that’s compared to Graeme Simsion’s The Rosie Project and Paolo Giordano’s The Solitude of Prime Numbers.’

    Library Journal

  • “Samuel, full of awkwardness and good intentions, is an easy protagonist to root for. The simplicity of Miralles’ writing is also key; his short chapters are like brief, linked thoughts that highlight the magic in the ordinary…A satisfyingly quaint romance.”
