Publisher Comments:

It's New Year's Eve in New York City. Your best friend died in September, you've been robbed twice, your girlfriend is leaving you, you've lost your job...and the only one left to talk to is the gay burglar you've got tied up in the kitchen... P.S. your cat is dead.

An instant classic upon its initial publication, P.S. Your Cat is Dead received widespread critical acclaim and near fanatical reader devotion. The stage version of the novel was equally successful and there are still over 200 new productions of it staged every year. Now, for the first time in a decade, James Kirkwood's much-loved black humor comic novel of manners and escalating disaster returns to bewitch and beguile a new generation.

About the Author

James Kirkwood was a prominent figure in the theater world as well as the author of several novels. He's best remembered as the co-author of the long-running musical A Chorus Line and for P.S. Your Cat is Dead.

Just when you thought your life couldn't be any worse, your girl friend leaves you, someone breaks into your apartment and oh yea, your cat is dead. Hysterically funny and sometimes incredibly painful to read, Kirkwood weaves a great tale of a man down on his luck (and that's putting it mildly). This book was given to me as a gift and I read it without putting it down. I now buy copies as gifts and leave out when guests come to visit.
