Editorial Reviews

Review

“Equal parts adventure story, heartwarming memoir, and gritty L.A. noir, In Search of Cleo is the unforgettable tale of one woman’s quest to find and reclaim the feline she loves. Laugh, cry, and prowl the darkened alleys of Tinseltown alongside Gershon through the pages of this book. Cat lovers everywhere will be glad they took the trip.”
–Gwen Cooper, author of the New York Times bestseller Homer’s Odyssey
 
“[A] charmingly quirky memoir…The lengths she goes to in her efforts to recover Cleo will definitely strike a chord with animal lovers.”
–Booklist
 
“Gershon thoughtfully weaves the wacky cat-finding stories with stories about her past cats and significant people in her life.”
Kirkus Reviews
 
“Spunky…The book combines Gershon’s wacky efforts to find Cleo with scenes from her love life, and in both arenas, the actress marches to the beat of her own drum.”
Publishers Weekly
 
“Gina, if you lose your pussy again, let me know. I can be of service.”
–Rita Mae Brown
 
“Cleo, good work. You’ve finally got your human trained.”
–Sneaky Pie

"I loved this book. If you need to read this blurb before deciding to buy it there is something wrong with you. It has Gina. And her pussy. And her cat. And other sexy, funny and insane information. You will laugh and then laugh some more."
–Denis Leary, author of Why We Suck: A Feel Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy, and Stupid
 
“A wonderful little book!”
–Jennifer Fox, Between the Covers Bookstore (Telluride, CO)

I saw her on my gay husband (in my head) show "Watch What Happens Live". I always liked Ms. Gershon's movies and when my husband said that I had to get the book (like he was really speaking only to me) I decided to take a chance and purchase it. I'm glad I did. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It was entertaining from the first page. I was disappointed when I finished it. I always thought I was a cat lady but reading her book I think she must be part feline. She wrote in the book that she loves black people. I want her to know that this black woman loves her too!! I highly reccommend it.

I really enjoyed this book, it was a quick read, would be perfect for a plane trip. In the book, Gina journals the weeks she spent searching for her cat who got lost in LA. Along the way she relates some of her life experiences, which are a little different from most. I think she has a gift for writing and it seems she may have psychic connections or gifts as well. If you enjoy that kind of thing, this book is worth reading for fun. If you are a cat lover, you can completely relate to the gut wrenching feeling of losing your cat and trying to find it in what appears to be a hopeless situation.

I received this book in the mail yesterday and read it cover to cover. I could not put it down! If you own a cat, or you love animals, you enjoy hearing stories about the relationships we have with each other and how people come into our lives for reasons, that we at first, may just not understand, then this book is for you! I love it and it gets 5 stars from me.

This is a fun short read for anyone who has #1 owned a cat #2 has had love woes #3 needed to put a smile on their face!
I am a fan of Gina's acting so I thought I'd give this a try...and was so pleasantly surprised! I am buying a bunch as stocking stuffers for all my girlfriends!
Can't wait for the movie version!

I bought the book when I found out Gershon was going to star in a friend's play. As it turned out, she didn't. But I also bought the book because I have a black cat named Cleo. It was a natural, therefore. The book is not for intellectuals, although I'm an intellectual (I've been accused of being one) and I loved the book. Gershon is witty, intelligent, street wise, moral, and free. Her connection to animals is actually a serious one, so any true animal lover will enjoy her nonchalant insights.

I adored this book and while I usually keep the books I truly love, I passed my copy onto a dear friend of mine. It has now become a traveling book, of sorts, being passed from fellow hip cat lover to fellow hip cat lover. If this book were a desert, it would be a rich (but not too rich) red velvet cake with double cream topping and no calories...

Gina Gershon is a great writer who can give you big laughs and some tears. I am a lover of animals and cats, in particular and Gina's descriptions of a couple of male cats deserve to be in a Hall of Fame of Animal Writing somewhere. Buy this Book! Some of the proceeds will be donated to organizations that help animals.
