The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards

By Kristopher Jansma

From as early as he can remember, the hopelessly unreliable yet earnest narrator of Jansma's debut novel has wanted to be a writer. From the jazz clubs of Manhattan to the villages of Sri Lanka, he will be inspired by the success of his greatest friend and rival in writing, the eccentric and brilliantly talented Julian McGann, and endlessly enamored of Julian's enchanting friend, Evelyn, the green- eyed girl who got away. Until the trio has a disastrous falling out.

Summary: "Can a leopard ever really change his spots? Can a person ever change? These are the timeless questions that Kristopher Jansma asks in this enchanting debut novel about three great friends--two men and one woman--their triumphs and failures in life and love and their globe-spanning adventures. From the jazz clubs of Manhattan to the villages of Sri Lanka, these three remarkably engaging characters grow up and grow old, fall in and out of love, write novels and wed wealthy European aristocrats. As much a story about a young man and his friends trying to find their way in the world as a whipsmart exploration of the nature of truth and storytelling, The Unchangeable Spots of Leopards will delight readers with its near perfect alchemy of emotional depth and warmth, formal playfulness, and sophisticated but always accessible exploration of what it means to grow up"-- Provided by publisher.
