Description: Hilarious, sexy, and deeply tender, "Kissing in Manhattan" follows an unforgettable troupe of love-hungry urbanites through a magical Manhattan. Including "The Smoker", which was featured in The New Yorker's Summer 2000 Debut Fiction Issue, this boldly original book marks the debut of a major talent in literary fiction.

The Preemption -- a mysterious apartment building manned by a prophetic doorman named Sender -- sets the stage for a comic romance as dark, mythic, and dazzling as the city it occupies. Inside, the paths of an improbable cast of tenants -- a seductive perfume heiress; a crabby, misunderstood actor; a preternaturally sharp-sighted priest -- tangle and cross, and a dramatic confrontation builds around the lives of three characters:

James Branch, a shy young accountant with an unusual attachment to the Preemption's antique elevator, and a strange destiny . . .

Patrick Rigg, a Wall Street lothario who soothes his pain by seducing beautiful women, carrying a gun, and attending the nightly sermons of a foreboding priest . . .

Rally McWilliams, a fetching, hopeful young writer who roams the city at night, searching for the soulmate she believes in but can't find . . . .

Charged with joy and a deadly sense of humor, "Kissing in Manhattan" invents a charmed metropolis where fantasy collides with fate, and the battles between men and women, good and evil, love and sex happen on every street corner.
