“No one writes about the subjects of sexuality, desire, the shadow, and diabolism with such relish, and when I read her words I feel both smarter and less afraid of my own ‘tabooed’ feelings and thoughts. Like a cat, Kristen sees in the dark, as she guides us gracefully forward with her vision of unapologetic, feminine power.” —From the Foreword by Pam Grossman, author of ...more

A smart, witty, fascinating and accessible exploration of the cat archetype throughout history. I'm not particularly a cat lover, but I loved Cat Call. I learned, I laughed, I was stunned by the encoding of cat and woman throughout world history, literature, the arts and pop culture. Although it's been quite some time since I've personally received a "cat call" from a man on my way to work or play, I did get this Cat Call.

Just the right balance of light-hearted and deep; this one explores a myriad of topics relating to women, cats, feminism and sexuality. A fascinating read.

All the topics were interesting but it almost felt like there were too many packed into one book. I would've liked to read detailed discussions on each of the concepts (some could be their own book entirely), but I guess this functioned well as an introduction to each of those ideas.
