From the author of some of the bestselling science fiction novels of all time, including the beloved classic Stranger in a Strange Land.
 
In this book, Robert A. Heinlein creates his most compelling character ever: Dr. Richard Ames, an ex-military man, sometime writer, and unfortunate victim of mistaken identity.

“Dialogue as witty as Oscar Wilde’s, action as rollicking as Edgar Rice Burrough’s, and satire as spicy as Jonathan Swift’s.”—The New York Times
 
“He is, if possible, a greater genius than ever before . . . this time by giving us a thinking man’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.”—San Francisco Chronicle
 
“Entertaining . . . plenty of fast action . . . vivid and believable.”—Chicago Sun
 
“Irresistible . . . The Cat Who Walks through Walls has a force that cannot be denied.”—Locus
