About the Book

Tuxedo Bob is a musically talented young man with a unique sense of humor, and an extraordinarily optimistic view of life. His classic black tuxedo illustrates his dedication to good manners and respectful behavior. His instinctive ability to make decisions based on what is right instead of what is convenient astounds the most hardened skeptic. His honesty bewilders the agents, bigots, producers, mobsters, and pessimists who come into his life; the kindness of his heart inspires his friends.

"Any situation in life is better when experienced in formal attire."

Orville Fledsper

Armed with a number of his father’s axioms and some off beat songs, Tuxedo Bob travels beyond the horizon of his hometown to seek employment as a songwriter. His demeanor makes him seem naïve, but his special way of dealing with the obstacles and situations he encounters on his twenty-three year journey from New York to Las Vegas and Hollywood will make you laugh, and will warm your heart. You will never forget Tuxedo Bob.

As an added bonus to this edition, and for your enjoyment, the authors have included all of Tuxedo Bob’s song lyrics, and the complete version of his musical screenplay, THE MIRROR OF MR. MOORE.

About the Author

TUXEDO BOB, was born from a two-page fictional biography that Rob wrote in 1997 about a quirky singer/songwriter. Susan thought Tuxedo Bob was an interesting character, and suggested they use the bio as the basis for a novel. Rob thought she was kidding. Four years and many reams of paper later he realized that she wasn’t.

They live in Southern California with their four cats, and are currently discussing the theme of their second novel.

Rob’s songwriting credits include "JUST AS I AM" for AIR SUPPLY, "(LET’S) DO IT FOR OUR COUNTRY" for the movie GREASE 2, "SINNERMAN" for SARAH DASH, and a number of songs for short-lived television shows. His recordings include the cult classic "TOMMY, JUDY & ME" for RCA Records, and an instrumental dance version of "IN A GADDA DA VIDA" for Kama Sutra Records.
