[good solid clean book, although with a few teensy nicks it the cloth at the top and bottom edges of both covers (possibly from light insect-nibbling); jacket shows a touch of soiling here and there, minor wear along top edge]. Religious-fantasy novel about a cat named Nemrod, the faithful companion of Bishop Patrick Casey, who is killed (the cat, that is) while performing a miraculous deed and thus arrives at the Pearly Gates wearing a saint's halo -- "which completely disrupted the life of an automated and computerized Heaven and gave Satan a marvelous idea for discrediting that 'uncouth Galilean fisherman.'" The authors were, respectively, a former librarian and (wait for it) a bishop. And I'll bet they had a cat or two, also.
