Fancy

(2015)
A novel by

 
An elderly shut-in delivers a series of pet-sitting instructions to a young couple who've come to watch over his many, many cats. A story (or series of stories) about the ways that methodical, abstract systems interface with messy, personal obsessions, Fancy is a kissing cousin to the work of both the late Henry James and the early Thomas Bernhard: an object lesson in how our need to make sense of the world winds up devouring it whole.
