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 momentsuntil an unexpected visitor slips into his Barcelona apartment and refuses to leave. The appearance of Mishima, a stray, brindle-furred cat, 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 (his neighbor Titus, with whom he's never exchanged a word). Even better, Mishima leads him back to the mysterious Gabriela, whom he thought he'd lost long before. In the spirit ofThe Solitude of Prime Numbers and The Guest Cat, Love in Lowercase is a charming and uplifting novel about how one man, thanks to a persistent cat-turned-catalyst, awakens to the importance of the little things in lifeand discovers that sometimes love is hiding in the smallest characters.From the Trade Paperback edition.
