Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Why couldn't the Sopranos survive living down South? Simple. You can't shoot a guy full of holes after eating chicken and pastry, spoon bread, okra, and tomatoes.

What does a Southern woman consider grounds for divorce? When daddy takes the kids out in public dressed in their pajama tops and Tweety Bird swim socks. Again.

What is the Southern woman's opinion of a new "fat virus" theory? Bring it on! We've got a lot of skinny friends we need to sneeze on.

In this wickedly funny follow-up to her bestselling novel Bless Your Heart, Tramp, Celia Rivenbark welcomes you, once again, to the South she loves, the land of "Mama and them," "precious and dahlin'," and mommies who mow. Y'all come back now, you hear?

Synopsis:

The irresistible bestselling collection of essays about the real truths of Southern life.

Funny, even hysterical in parts. Great read especially if you have some 'Southern in y'all.' Fun facts about SOuthern culture, and situations most of us can relate to at least once, if not more.
