Difficult to explain, easy to read. The Cat’s Table is part memoir, part fiction. A delicious and sometimes intoxicating blend of reminiscence and storytelling. Ondaatje conjures up the exotic and the bizarre, the erotic and the romantic without obvious effort. Highly recommended. (The Booktopia Book Guru)
