NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Like all comic novels, Tomcat is a complex affair that invites a complex response and offers a complex reward.”
The New York Times Book Review

Tomcat in Love is a wonderful novel, laugh-out-loud funny, one of the best books I’ve come across in years. . . . Go out and find a copy . . . now. It really is that good.”
—Washington Post

“Tim O’Brien knows cold the spiraling insularity of obsession. . . . Thomas Chippering . . . is wickedly realized. The agility and intelligence that created this pathos-ridden romantic make one marvel at Tim O’Brien’s gifts.”
Boston Sunday Globe

“A great American novel.”
—Atlanta Journal-Constitution

“It’s a plain fact; don’t argue. Tim O’Brien can flat-out write. . . . Quirky and immensely satisfying. . . . After all the years of deadly serious writing, O’Brien has swung from the opposite side of the plate with Tomcat. He’s hit a home run.”
Denver Post

“Wildly funny, accusingly poignant. . . . O’Brien has done a masterful job of depicting all those loose ends, those unmailed valentines, that final abiding question we have all . . . asked of the loved one who has left us behind.”
San Diego Union Tribune
