From the author:
"I’m a fan of big comic novels like “Catch-22”, “A Confederacy of Dunces”, “Gravity’s Rainbow” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” as well as the shorter black comedy novels by Kurt Vonnegut, Evelyn Waugh, Douglas Adams, Tom Sharpe, Kingsley Amis, and, of course, P G Wodehouse.
Since few of these types of novels are written these days, I decided to write one for myself as well as other people to enjoy.
“Wearing the Cat” is a big comic novel divided into four parts. “Part One: Flaming Hoops” was just published on kindle with a print version to be available soon."
Here's the blurb:
Set in 1989, with America near the height of her power, prestige, and influence, “Wearing the Cat” concerns the exuberant and blackly comic misadventures of Lt. Nick McGill, dentist in the United States Navy Dental Corps.
In “Flaming Hoops”, Part One of “Wearing the Cat”, Lt Nick McGill feels that his life has gone wrong. He joined the Navy as a way to add excitement to his life only to discover a distinct lack of wine, women, and adventure in the day to day drill and fill of the Williamsville Naval Dental Clinic. Tooth decay? Oh, yeah. Plenty of that. Bad breath? Goes with the territory. The three little words? If only he didn’t have to hear those three little words ever again.
Worst of all, in his boredom and loneliness, McGill finds himself questioning past decisions, and feeling nostalgic about past girlfriends.
Perhaps all he needs to do is to get laid.
When into his life steps his new, wondrously sexy Dental Assistant, DT2 Sayers. That is, Dental Technician Second Class Sayers.
But, there’s a problem. Well, actually, two problems.
One, sex between officers and enlisted, dating even, is fraternization, a court-martial offense, which McGill’s Commanding Officer, the Old Man, is a stickler for. That is, when not giving McGill the kind of lecture which makes him want to count the freckles on his arm.
And two, there are rumors that DT2 Sayers got kicked out of Japan. By the Japanese government. What is that all about?
McGill’s idiotic yet brilliant solutions to his dilemma lead to an exquisite series of surprises, twists, and laughs as just about everything that could possibly go wrong for McGill does. And changes his life forever.
Wry and ribald, deeply human and wildly hilarious, sexy and subversive, with excellent oral hygiene, “Wearing the Cat” is a fun, funny, and fast paced read.
