Default P.S. Your Cat Is Dead

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 just lost your job....and the only one left to talk to is the bisexual burglar you've got tied up in the kitchen. P.S. Your Cat is Dead was an instant classic upon its initial publication in 1972, when it received widespread critical acclaim, reader devotion, and subsequently went through dozens of print-ings over the course of the next decade. The stage version was equally successful and is still staged over 200 times a year in productions around the country. Now, for the first time in a decade, Kirkwood's much-loved black humor comic novel of manners and escalating disaster returns to bewitch and beguile a new generation.
Customer Review: Dissapointing and offensive in many ways.
After seeing this book around I got a copy after checking the reviews here :) But what I found is a 1973 old book that has finally been printed post-mortem, with some dippy 1973 sensibilities like you can fix any problem by smoking some strong marijuana, or it's OK to snatch a purse if the victim can afford it. Then there's the homo/bi-sexuality part, one of the major themes of the book. I wasn't offended but I didn't care for it either. This book should make a great movie for the Brokeback Mountain crowd.
Customer Review: Excellent book
Surprising, entertaining, thought-provoking. Read it when you're down, you'll be up by the time it's over, except for wishing there was more for you to read. I hesitate to tell you more for fear of revealing plot elements that are best appreciated when and how revealed by the author. If you like A Catcher in the Rye, you will probably like this book (although I think Salinger's book is better.)
