2am at The Cat’s Pajamas

Good morning! I’ve been so excited to share this news! My first novel, 2 A.M. AT THE CAT’S PAJAMAS, will be published by Crown (Random House), August 2014! I am over the moon, the stars, the solar system, back to the moon, back to earth, where I sit, typing this to you.

2 A.M. AT THE CAT’S PAJAMAS follows a brassy little girl jazz-singer (and a bunch of other people) over the course of one fateful Christmas Eve Eve in Philadelphia. The first scene I wrote was dated October 17th, 2001.
(Thank you to Claudia Ballard for championing this book. And I know she’ll see this because she checks my website every day, thank you to my mom Helene, strongest person I know.)

  1. My daughter Caitlin Jackson adores you and now we both await your book with bated breath.

  2. I noticed this book received 4/5 stars on Amazon? Well, when I’m finished reviewing it, anything less than five will be unacceptable. I am a Philadelphia Jazz Singer and Advocate. I know the Philly scene and the musicians from Old Heads to the Young Lions. I suspects the Jazz Village will love it! As a writer and Barnes & Noble Manager, that’s my job!

    I just heard your interview on NPR, and can’t wait to read your debut novel! I live in that other city associated with Jazz, New Orleans!

    Just found out about this book from an Oprah newsletter, so congrats! Looking forward to reading it. I’m hoping in Canada we’ll get the cover that I saw in the newsletter, as it is gorgeous! Who did the cover art?

    I just read your book with my bookclub and we liked it except, we were all confused by the ending (Madeleine and Mrs. Santiago). Can you please explain?! I see other reviews that wonder the same thing. Thank you!
