Time moves differently in Point Vestal, a sleepy northwestern town, where ghosts from the late 19th century roam the coastal streets as freely as the town’s  living inhabitants. But underneath the touristy allure of this commingled past and present lies a creeping darkness. August Starling, a decadent (and dead) crime baron, has a plan for Point Vestal—whose magical nature has become a haven for sinners fleeing their crimes. And the only ones who can stop Starling are the town’s newest residents: a defrocked Episcopalian priest and a talking cat.
 
The Off Season is an effusive meditation on the nature of the fantastic, by a writer The Atlanta Constitution calls “a lasting voice in modern American literature.”

“A consummate yarn, told with many digressions and anecdotes that combine with folksy humor to create a tall tale suffused with pathos and melancholy.” 

     —The Seattle Times
“A fine, fabulous fable packed with marvelous events and wonders.”
 
     —Gahan Wilson
“Without a doubt Cady’s funniest, weirdest, most original, and—literally—spookiest novel yet.”
 
     —Peter S. Beagle
“A pungent mix of Tom Robbins, Ray Bradbury, and Charles G. Finney—but pure Cady, and it’s glorious.”
 
     —Greg Bear
“Jack Cady’s knack for golden sentences is an alchemy any other writer has to admire. “
 
     —Ivan Doig
“Jack Cady is above all, a writer of great, unmistakable integrity and profound feeling. He never fakes it or coasts, and behind every one of his sentences is an emotional freight that bends it both outward, toward the reader, and inward, back to the source.”
 
     —Peter Straub
“A writer whose words reverberate with human insight.” 
 
     —Publishers Weekly
“His structural control and the laconic richness of his style establish Cady in the front ranks of contemporary writers.”
 
     —Library Journal
“When Cady settles into yarn-spinning, his stories have the humor and comfortable mastery of Faulkner or Steinbeck.”
 
     —National Review
