Product Description

“Pamela Sargent’s Season of the Cats opens the door on what seems a quiet domestic drama and then draws us in by giving an odd psychological turn to the surface ordinariness of her main characters, husband Don Martinson and wife Gena Lawlor—who, we learn, have more going on in their lives than their unique personal quirks, their unsatisfying day jobs, or their shared fondness for cats. Indeed, Sargent’s novel qualifies as an eerie entry in the Alfred Hitchcock suspense sweepstakes. It stalks its readers from first page to last with a self-possessed feline single-mindedness that brooks no resistance and affords little respite. Even its satisfying resolution contains within it the admonitory possibility of further raised hackles and claws still ready to unsheathe. A deliciously unsettling performance.”

—Michael Bishop, author of Who Made Stevie Crye?

 

“Pamela Sargent has given us a delectable confection, wrought from an irresistible recipe: a dash of Fritz Leiber, a touch of Neil Gaiman, a dollop of Roald Dahl—plus a full measure of her characteristic adroit plotting and compelling prose. At once whimsical and sardonic, Season of the Cats will enchant all fans of offbeat fantasy.”

—James Morrow, author of Galápagos Regained

 

“Pamela Sargent’s latest novel Season of the Cats might be called fantastic realism. With the lightest of touches, Sargent reveals what shivers and glitters just below what we think is familiar, ordinary, and comfortable. The author’s trademark attention to detail and step-off-the-page characters are all here, as well as her deft plotting. Sargent is a major American author whose work slips in and out of genre…whose work transcends genre.”

—Jack Dann, author of The Man Who Melted

and The Memory Cathedral

 

“​A gifted social critic, Pamela Sargent draws the lives of a dysfunctional suburban couple as seen in a fresh, sometimes funny, often macabre light. Which is the bigger threat to the marriage, the evil spectre they call Household or the countless furry citizens of Catalonia, their imaginary Magic Kingdom who show up in real life? The race threatens to be a photo finish; finding out what happens, and how, is half the fun.​”

—Kit Reed, author of The Story So Far and Enclave
