Tapdancer  a novel 

 

 

A comic novel in the off-center tradition of Vonnegut, Bunuel, or Groundhog Day—farce as today’s reality. It starts as romantic comedy, plunges into horror, then bobs to the surface.

Ken Leonard is an investment broker. Emphatically conventional, he’s givena gag gift—six tapdance lessons—and takes the dare. One go-for-it sparks animpetuous romance.

But the risks reach critical mass, leading to Ken’s solo act of social protest: defacing an offensive billboard. He expects to pay his fine and return to his love story. But the justice system faces budget cuts; the trial moves to the furnace room; and he faces an improbable sentence.
