January 2023: New science-fiction masterpiece The Time Meowchine: A Talking Cat’s Y2K Quest to Save the World (A Novel) is AVAILABLE NOW!
• One of New York magazine’s Best Comedy Books of 2023 •
A lovable and heroic kitty must prevent climate “apawcalypse” in this wildly original, humorous science-fiction novel.
2040: Earth is dying. Brilliant inventor and elder millennial Dr. Tara Switcher tried to save the environment, but politicians banned her controversial technology. Now she’s waiting for the end with Blink, her sweetly optimistic brain-chipped feline.
2000: There’s still hope. Tara is a teenage activist who can’t persuade anybody of anything; her approach needs a less zealous vibe. (Blink isn’t born yet, but Tara listens to a lot of Blink-182.)
The future Dr. Switcher discovers a way back to her stubborn younger self … and if she can’t alter the darkest timeline, then maybe Blink can. The Time Meowchine is a story of friendship across the multiverse that will leave readers purring.
“[A]ctually a well constructed time-travel novel… It’s funny but poignant, ridiculous but bittersweet.” —Vulture
