Abstract:

An internationally bestselling romantic comedy for fans of The Rosie Project, about a language-loving bachelor and the cat that opens his eyes to life s little pleasures When Samuel, a lonely linguistics lecturer, wakes up on New Year s Day, he is convinced that the year ahead will bring nothing more than passive verbs and un-italicized moments until an unexpected visitor slips into his Barcelona apartment and refuses to leave. The appearance of Mishima, a stray, brindle-furred cat, leads Samuel from the comforts of his favorite books, foreign films, and classical music to places he s never been (next door) and to people he might never have met (his neighbor Titus, with whom he s never exchanged a word). Even better, Mishima leads him back to the mysterious Gabriela, whom he thought he d lost long before. In the spirit of The Solitude of Prime Numbers and The Guest Cat, Love in Lowercase is a charming and uplifting novel about how one man, thanks to a persistent cat-turned-catalyst, awakens to the importance of the little things in life and discovers that sometimes love is hiding in the smallest characters. A delightfully absurd, life-affirming celebration. I literally stood up and cheered as I read the last page. Matthew Quick, New York Times bestselling author of The Silver Linings Playbook and Love May Fail.
