The Cat's Table
Do you remember what you did when you were 11 years old?In the novel, "The Cat's Table," the elegant prose chronicles the sea voyage of just such a young child, a boy. He is put on a ship in Sri Lanka and disembarks in London. The adventures, other passengers, and circumstances are revealed in the beautiful words of the author, Michael Ondaatji. I didn't want to miss a single word.
