A young man meets a handsome cat at a gay bar. The cat is repulsive yet charming; adoring but scornful. The man is hooked. In Statovci’s first novel, surreal encounters (like this one) evoke the alienation and exile felt by refugees used to everywhere playing “the other”. Like Exit West, this debut employs just enough magical realism to displace the reader; My Cat Yugoslavia is a perceptual marvel. ~Reviewed by Aubrey Restifo
