Another Great First Line
"THERE'S A CAT IN A BOX in Cambridge Massachusetts."
From our friend Adam Felber's fine novel "Schrodinger''s Ball" (Random House $13.95 and signed copies are available).
Part Schrodinger, part Joyce, part Robbins and part his own, this novel follows four friends through a fateful weekend, where love is found, friendship is honored and hope prevails. There is a great Rube Goldberg climax with illustration that explains all. And the cat survives. Or does he? You'll have to open the book to find out.
Adam is also the nicest guy in Show Business.
Some of you know this all ready. Adam is a regular panelist on NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me! He is also now a writer on Bill Maher's Real Time on HBO. His mom writes great regency romances. His sister is on CourtTV. What a family.
I recommend his novel whole-heartedly. It is a great read, a fun romp, a splendid time is guaranteed for all.
