A stunning hardback edition of this surprise hit - perfect for Christmas gifting. RECOMMENDED BY THOUSANDS OF INTERNATIONAL READERS - the tender feelgood story of a man's journey around Japan with a streetcat. Translated by Philip Gabriel, a translator of Murakami. INCLUDES SPECIALLY COMMISSIONED LINE-DRAWINGS. Nana is on a road trip, but he is not sure where he is going. All that matters is that he can sit beside his beloved owner Satoru in the front seat of his silver van. Satoru is keen to visit three old friends from his youth, though Nana doesn’t know why and Satoru won’t say. Set against the backdrop of Japan’s changing seasons and narrated with a rare gentleness and striking humour, Nana’s story explores the wonder and thrill of life’s unexpected detours. It is about the value of friendship and solitude, and knowing when to give and when to take. TRAVELLING CAT has already demonstrated its power to move thousands of readers with a message of kindness and truth. It shows, above all, how acts of love, both great and small, can transform our lives.

3 Spurs books I enjoyed over the years. Particularly recommend the Hunter Davies book:
The Double: The Inside Story of Spurs' Triumphant 1960-61 Season, Ken Ferris
The Glory Game, Hunter Davies (Davies spent a whole season with the team, training with them, visiting the players' homes and witnessing the dressing-room confrontations)
This One's On Me, Jimmy Greaves

Good list here too:
