Doll-baby by Laura Lane McNeal

Grab a copy of this book for an excellent and rather eccentric read.  Eccentric because that is the perfect description for the wildly unusual characters.  Doll-baby is the novel of some very flawed people living their lives during the civil rights era, the 1960s, in New Orleans.

I loved each of the characters on their own merit . . . okay maybe not Ibby's mother so much.  The characters are carefully crafted to full effect for a novel which will tickle your funny bone and warm the cockles of your heart.  Mostly it is about finding family even when they aren't related.

An excellent read!
