My first book read in 2022 was a manga/graphic novel called A Man & His Cat, by Umi Sakurai. It is a story about a lonely widower who adopts a cat and of all the changes that happen because of that new relationship. It was delightful! A gentle, sweet story that warmed my heart was the perfect beginning for 2022!
And then I discovered that it is the first in a series of six books — oh joy! — so I’m off to the library to find the other volumes!
I read this book as part of Dolce Bellezza’s Japanese Literature #15 challenge.
