"If Cats Disappeared from the World" has sold millions of copies in Kawamura's native Japan, and I can see why. It's a charming story of a dying man who becomes embroiled in a wager between God and the Devil - what would the man sacrifice from this world for extra days of life? The Devil chooses cleverly - phones, movies, clocks - nostalgic things which urges the man to make amends or find closure for incidents in his past. A wonderful, magical, short story, readable in one session
