A Cat At the End of the World


“Perišić takes his time in pulling the threads of the story together . . . A graceful meditation on history and nature by an author well worth knowing.” —Kirkus Reviews

“A Cat At the End of the World moves past realism and insight into the realm of expression and symbol.” —Nell Zink, author of Avalon


Delivered like a fable, A Cat At the End of the World shifts perspectives between a runaway slave and the Scatterwind, a bodiless spirit that moves effortlessly through time and space, from the days of ancient Syracuse to our contemporary era. At the center of their stories is Miu, an Egyptian cat—one of the earliest to be domesticated—through whom Robert Perišić channels a deeply profound and beautiful understanding of animal and human behaviors as seen through the results of language, warfare, colonization, trade, and the building of a society.

Guided by Perišić’s unique sensitivity, A Cat At the End of the World solidifies his reputation as one of the most exciting and important contemporary writers in Europe.
