This is the official thread for Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats by T.S. Eliot, one of our June reads. Please post up your thoughts about the book here.

Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats is probably most famous for being the inspiration for the musical Cats. I'm afraid it's been kind of over-shadowed by its descendent. But it's a really great book. I enjoyed the poems - they're fun and light and extremely well-written (as you would expect of something by T.S. Eliot).

There's an interesting discussion here about some of the language used in the book, and whether T.S. Eliot was racist.


Teresa | 24 comments I found it hard to get through this book. I love my cat, but wow. Now I know, I can't read a whole book devoted to cats.
