"Gene Wilder has written a remarkable period piece. It’s an elegantly woven story of intrigue, danger, sex and comedy –but for me the big surprise is that it’s a truly moving and eloquent love story.
“A…touching debut novel…(it) takes the form of the final, eloquent notebook of a man still finding out who he is.”—Publishers Weekly
“It’s unavoidable: the hero of MY FRENCH WHORE simply must be imagined as a young Gene Wilder. The talented actor who wrote this enjoyable novella…makes an easy transition from stage to page.”—The Seattle Times
“Sweet fluff. If you loved ‘Young Frankenstein,’ you’ll be awfully fond of this.”—The Washington Post
“Wilder’s delightful fiction debut (is) a novel so witty, dramatic and romantic that the reader is left with an indelible mental movie.”—Los Angeles Times
