About this ebook

A neighborhood is turned upside down when an alien lands on a New York rooftop.

In this charming debut novel we meet the residents of an East Village block whose lives are thrown into turmoil by an extraterrestrial visitor. There's a wanna-be rock star, his eccentric rabbit-loving neighbor, a cursed superintendent, and a ghost-obsessed old woman, along with a remarkable cat. Their intersecting paths are all drawn up towards the otherworldly creature lurking overhead.

When Ollie spies a two-headed turtle from outer space on a nearby rooftop he wonders if he has lost his mind. His incredulous friends certainly think so. To make matters worse he lands in hot water at his bookstore day job and his cat has gone missing. His bandmate Zara offers to help him track down the troublesome feline, and they join forces with a nosy starlet to follow a trail of clues that leads them inexorably up toward a mysterious rooftop creature who would much prefer to remain hidden.

The Intergalactic Interloper is a lighthearted romp through a bohemian New York world, a one of a kind novel that is as memorable and interesting as it is fun.
