She's lost her home, status and respectability, but the only thing she longs for is Lily, the elegant tortoiseshell cat she shared with her husband. As Shinako pleads for Lily's return, Shozo's reluctance to part with the cat reveals his true affections, and the lengths he'll go to hold onto the one he loves most.A small masterpiece, A Cat, a Man, and Two Women is a study of Japanese society and manners, and an oddball comedy about a love triangle in which the only real rival is feline.Cats Fiction Fiction
