We will be discussing the novel, The Cat’s Table by Michael Ondaatje. In the early 1950’s an 11-year-old boy boards a ship to sail from Sri Lanka to meet his Mother in London. Ondaatje, best known for the novel The English Patient, uses his lyrical, imaginative prose and child’s-eye view to portray a cast of singular characters (including two other young boys) and recount their adventures. Looking back, the narrator reveals how this experience and these special people affected his later life.
