When the rabbi's cat wins the gift of speech by swallowing a parakeet, he uses it both to tell lies (that he didn't eat the parakeet, for example) and to tell his own story. But now that he's lied, the rabbi forbids him from talking to his daughter, Zlabya, and vows to educate him in the Torah. For his part, the cat wants to study Kabbalah and he wants a bar mitzvah. But the question of whether a feline can be Jewish must first be intensely debated by the cat and his master. When Zlabya falls in love with a dashing young rabbi, both are crestfallen and jealous, but the journey to meet the young man's secular family in Paris provides additional opportunities for the rabbi and his cat to discuss both the important and petty details of life. Vibrant with the colors, textures, and feeling of a lost world (one where Jews and Arabs easily co-existed) "The Rabbi's Cat is populated with wholly believable and endearing people and one truly unforgettable cat

La personnalité baroque de Joann Sfar domine le paysage de la création contemporaine en bande dessinée. En quinze ans de carrière, il a constamment été sous le feu des projecteurs, bâtissant une œuvre généreuse, tentaculaire, protéiforme. 'Le Chat du rabbin', 'Petit Vampire', 'Pascin', 'Donjon', 'Klezmer' sont quelques-unes des œuvres phares d'un auteur qui ne cesse d'écrire, pour lui-même ou ses complices (David B, Emmanuel Guibert, Lewis Trondheim, Christophe Blain, José Luis Munuera, Hervé Tanquerelle, Pénélope Bagieu, Clément Oubrerie). Sfar est aussi réalisateur de films (quatre César et un Grand Prix du festival d'Annecy), il est devenu directeur de collection chez Gallimard et commissaire d'exposition ('Brassens' à la Cité de la Musique), et il se prépare à investir massivement le champ romanesque. 'Recordman' des interviews, il va plus loin dans ce livre de conversations et se livre comme jamais
