This is an auction for THE CAT WHO WALKS THROUGH WALLS: A COMEDY OF MANNERS, by Robert A Heinlein.

Amazon.com reviews:

"Robert A. Heinlein has written some of the best-selling science fiction novels of all time, including the beloved classic ''Stranger in a Strange Land''. Now, in The Cat Who Walks through Walls, he creates his most compelling character ever: Dr Richard Ames, ex-military man, sometime writer, and unfortunate victim of mistaken identity. When a stranger attempting to deliver a cryptic message is shot dead at his dinner table, Ames is thrown head first into danger, intrigue, and other dimensions where Lazarus Long still thrives, where Jubal Harshaw lives surrounded by beautiful women, and where a daring plot to rescue the sentient computer called Mike can change the direction of all human history."

"FIVE STARS!!! This was the second book by Heinlein I ever read, the first being Stranger in a Strange Land. Of the two I prefer this one. In the last third of the book he does bring in aspects from Time Enough For Love and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress but I do not believe it is necessary to have read those two books to enjoy this one. I would highly recommend anyone who likes science fiction or fantasy to read this book. That said, Heinlein had his own ideas about social interaction (particularly sex) and if you find that offensive then you will probably not enjoy any of his later books. Take this as a great work of fiction with some interesting insights into sex and politics and you will probably enjoy it."
