We're Just Like You, Only Prettier: Confessions of a Tarnished Southern Belleby Celia Rivenbark
Synopses & Reviews
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?
The irresistible bestselling collection of essays about the real truths of Southern life.
In this compulsively readable collection of humor, Rivenbark welcomes readers to the South she loves, the land of "Mama and them," "precious and dahlin," and mommies who mow.
"I thought I was Southern until I read Celia Rivenbark's book...what a funny, smart, and irreverent writer she is!"
- Lee Smith, author of The Last Girls
- Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Even die-hard Yankees will appreciate this wickedly funny collection...an amusing and refreshingly honest look at family life on this side of the Mason-Dixon line."
- Dallas Morning News
