Baby Cat-Face was just as wonderfully weird and fun as I've come to expect Barry Gifford to be. This features a bit of a pre-Wild at Heart Sailor and Lula, but mostly focuses on the New Orleans adventures of the titular Baby, her friends and lovers, and her unusual religious experiences at Mother Bizco's Temple of the Few Washed Pure by Her Blood. At least one name or phrase on every page is amazing enough to want to read aloud to someone else in the room (which probably irritated my husband), i ...more

I picked this book up off a library shelf, knowing nothing about it or the author, and it completely inverted my toupee.

A fast read, funny. One of my all-time favorite reads, although this is partially due to the surprise factor ... like when I was 8 or so, flipping through the Tv dial, and thought I'd found an old cop show, but it turned out to be the beginning of Psycho.
I still loved this book but I felt the ending of this story did not make a whole lot of sense and for that I have to deduct one star. Of course Barry Gifford books are almost always a fun read.
I stumbled upon this novel about 8 or 9 years ago while in high-school. I found the writing style most unusual. But apart from it being bizarre, there was nothing interesting about it.
I loved this book for about the first 100 pages..... but then it got weirder and weirder and the ending was going in several directions at once. I deducted one star for that reason.
One of the weirdest books I have ever read.
this book had me in tears. hilarious and magical.
