A couple wants a cat. He wants to show vigour, and gets a cat that she doesn’t like, so he has to get rid of it again. At the same time he finds a place where he can hide when he wants to be left alone. He wants that more and more often. This is the starting point for an original novel which in a rare way develops its own inner logic, a novel where the burlesque and suggestive situations seem to move towards something enigmatic and exceeding.
