Darconville’s Cat


When Alexander Theroux wrote Darconville’s Cat, he wove a story of forbidden love and despair while savoring unusual words, multiple methods of narrative, and interspersed bits of humor in the midst of a spiral into oblivion. It’s a highly under appreciated literary work, and if you’re looking for something that most likely nobody else you know has read, I highly suggest picking up a used copy of this novel somewhere. You won’t regret it.

And there’s a cat in it too.

Here is a review.
