John Powers seems to capture what it was like growing up Catholic in a really protestant society. I can relate.

I read this book years ago. As you would expect I was raised Catholic. It was a hysterical look at growing up Catholic.

A great read for a great price.

If you grew up in a Catholic environment in the 1950s this book will give you a chance to relive your early childhood. At times it seems that you were in the same class and church as the author. I read the book probably 40 years ago, loved it then, love it now.

Fun book. Brought back laughs and memories

If you grew up in Catholic schools, especially mid century, this is a hilarious must read, along with its two sequels And if you did not---it is still hilarious, as a human study. ????

there are so many great stories and anecdotes about growing up Catholic in the 50s and 60s in this book. The foibles and hilarious memories of Catholic school are so fun for readers to read! If you are a fan of Late Night Catechism, you will totally love this book!
It has been over 30 years since reading this, the first of the Black Patent Leather trilogy. The cadence, the visuals, the words of a simpler time. What a great visit!
