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.

Praise for P.S. Your Cat Is Dead

Critical Praise for P.S. Your Cat is Dead:

"With every page the situation gets crazier, zanier, more improbable, also funnier...Kirkwood's bizarre humor comes off, thanks to his ability to throw opposites together, with a stand up comic's timing."
- Publishers Weekly

"An extraordinary novel...an ingenious, intriguing, and also moving story about two losers who become friends. It is also a revealing book about burning your bridges behind you."
- Sacramento Union

"This novel is woven together with such artistic acumen that suspense never ebbs. The plot structure, characterization, dialog and style are virtually flawless."
- Chicago Sun-Times

"James Kirkwood manages to combine the most marvelous light witty dialogue with the most harrowing of events...absolutely fascinating -- I couldn't stop reading from the minute the first shot was fired."
- Nora Ephron
