Walt Loves the Bearcat is the epic sports novel that dares to dream.
A lifelong romance between a black college cheerleader and a white college quarterback changes sports history forever when the QB becomes the first superstar athlete to admit his love for another man while in the prime of his pro football career.
Too good to be true? Not if you believe in love, miracles and flying football stadiums.
A 721-page, adventure-filled odyssey where serious issues like homophobia, racism and AIDS exist right alongside fantastical characters like Hail Larry, Evil Announcer Guy and the Emergency Wife. Big fun!
Walt Loves the Bearcat … your ticket is your imagination.
