Guest of a Sinner by James Wilcox

By James Wilcox

"It is 22 cats that force the dazzlingly good-looking Eric Thorsen to distraction and into the apartment—if no longer instantly the arms—of Wanda Skopinski, the fairly mousy girl he meets at church while she thrusts a lesbian romance novel upon him. The stench from downstairs drives him from either his rent-controlled condo and his complacency as a not-quite-successful piano instructor. In his 6th novel, James Wilcox strikes past the fashionable South he has etched so vividly and amusingly long ago to tackle new york. yet someway he manages to carry the town right down to size...The publication is stuffed with as eccentric an array of characters and as a lot light kinkiness as any small-town chronicle...A profitable and regularly pleasing story." —Vogue
