The Cat’s Table, by Michael Ondaatje

Traveling by ship–largely unsupervised–from Ceylon to London, 11-year old Michael is seated at the cat’s table, “the least privileged place.”  The anonymity of that location allows Michael and the two other boys at his table to explore, eavesdrop, and observe the adults around them.  Their adventures, and what they learn, have repercussions far beyond their short journey.
