    READ THIS BOOK!!

    Tomcat in Love is one of the most astounding works I've read in a while. The narrator reaches levels of infuriating and pathetic proportions, reminiscent of Nabakov's Humbert Humbert. What keeps the reader (and Chippering's listeners) from walking away is the compelling, if convoluted, nature of his story. Not many writers can pull off a feat like this, and O'Brien not only succeeds, but does so with compassion and humor.

    In Love with Tomcat

    Tomcat in Love is a superb look into the mind of obsession. O'Brien has created a stark reality of man posessed with the need for adoration and attention of the opposite sex. Compeling at points, enjoyably absurd in others, Tomcat in Love keeps you enthralled with an egotistical wit unlike any other out there.

    Very funny and original take on mid-life crisis-

    Tomcat in Love is a great, rollicking journey through a mid-life crisis for an upper middle class "lost boy" with just a tad more self-importance than most, but not so much as to make him a caricature. It's fast, fun and quite a different turn from Tim O'Brien.
