About this title


A wise and bitter novel about memory and death. —New Yorker

...The reader will be grateful for this memoir of the times. —New York Times Book Review

What you hear is Cat's voice, which is also the voice of a generation...Maspero has written a novel that has at its center the particulars of a believable character's anguish and sorrow–a novel this is about the enduring truths of loving and surviving. —St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A bitter, finely detailed, authentic coming-of-age novel.—Kirkus Reviews

Hiding quietly behind his Cheshire grin, Cat has seen that men do terrible things to one another, and that they invent lies to justify their acts. In Paris, he has befriended a young bar attendant and, through her, he is introduced to a world as cruel as anything he saw during the war. Here, in the streets and cafes, the violence is aimed at women....Cat's Grin is an exceptionally fine novel, a wise and humane look at a world that is both shocking and familiar. —San Francisco Chronicle
