A dreamy memory/mystery of a young boy and an ocean liner

The Cat's Table tells the story of 10-year-old Michael, as he finds himself traveling on an 1950s ocean liner across the world. Surrounded by a diverse cast misfits both youthful and adult, Michael takes a soul-defining journey that affects him deep into his adult life. Poetic, hazy, and deeply situated within the confines of the Oronosay, this story of one boy's antics, sights, sounds, and lifelong odyssey will keep you desperate for each successive page.
