A quick fun read, reminiscent of an early Tom Robbins in its quirkiness. Dialog is funny and smart, though the book comes across a bit like a movie treatment in spots.
Think Twin Peaks on copious amounts of sugar, though a little less Lynch and a little more Robbins.

In this outrageous debut novel that introduced Moore to an unsuspecting literary community, readers meet Travis, a 100-year-old ex-seminarian and scholar, and Catch, a demon with a nasty habit of eating most of the people he meets.
