Catsby: A Parody

8th Circle Press (2016)

“The funniest take on a bestseller since Harvard Lampoon’s Bored of the Rings.” — CNBC on Shaffer’s Fifty Shades parody, Fifty Shames of Earl Grey

Jay Z. Catsby throws the sickest parties on the Jersey Shore. His neighbor Dick has heard all the rumors: Catsby killed a man. He’s richer than Blue Ivy. He’s Hugh Jackman’s butt double in the X-Men movies.

As Dick soon learns, the truth is far stranger. Catsby is a furry who spends his days and nights in a cat costume, pining away for Dick’s cousin Dandelion, a manic-pixie dream yuppie living in Park Slope with her brutish husband. Against everyone’s better judgment—but much to the reader’s amusement—Catsby begins an affair with Dandelion that may cost him all nine of his lives.

Much like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby skewered the Roaring Twenties, this parody from New York Times bestseller Andrew Shaffer satirizes our modern era with savage wit and humor. 50,000 reads on Wattpad!
