Frederik Pohl experiments with parallel universes and quantum mechanics, in a bamboozling story that, despite its repeated references to Senator Kennedy and his wife Jackie, feels more like the surrealism of Dr. Strangelove. I really like the idea of "The Coming Of The Quantum Cats" (a book about alternate realities/time lines converging, and how different environments and political atmospheres can change who and what a person is and does) but the plot and story were murky and difficult to become engaged and interested in. I much prefer Frederik Pohl's "The Space Merchants.

It is customary to print a disclaimer in novels, saying that the characters are fictitious and that no resemblance to any real person, living or dead, is intended. This is, in the case of this book, wholly true, in spite of the fact that some of the characters have names made famous by position and deeds. if they had been someone other than the persons they were.

The other I never lost at all. I had the best collection of dirty books on the Near North Side. Porno flicks hadn't got out in the open yet, but there were places where you could pay two dollars and get into the back room of a coin-machine arcade or a sleazy bookstore and watch grainy black-and-white films from Tijuana and Havana. For a long time I wasn't entirely sure that a man could make love to a woman without wearing black calf-length stockings and a mask.
When I came out of the dressing room the sergeant wasn't critical. Looking sharp, Major," she complimented. What did you leave him in?"

The Coming of the Quantum Cats is a 1986 science fiction novel by American writer Frederik Pohl. It was originally serialized in Analog science-fiction magazine, January–April 1986. The novel proposes invasions from alternate Earths in alternate universes. None of these universes are quite like our universe; however, they all have some element or other in common, many of which Pohl develops to satiric effect.
In my opinion, "Coming of the Quantum Cats" is Pohl's best book. If you like good character development and solid quantum theory with people jumping between alternate earths then read this book. In an alternate America ruled by Arabs, Nicky DeSota is a timid real estate agent who gets arrested for swimming topless with his girlfriend. Agent Nyla "No Thumbs" Christophe interrogates Nicky about surveillance pictures taken of him breaking into a secret laboratory.
