Publisher Comments:

Anyone who has read her bestseller Mama Makes Up Her Mind--or who has heard her on National Public Radio--knows that Bailey White is one of the keenest observers of Southern eccentricity since Mark Twain. Sleeping at the Starlite Motel revives White's reputation as a master storyteller, Southern division, as it catalogs the oddities of the Georgia town she knows so well.

Short stories, easy to read, made me laugh and cry with the ease with which the author describes wildly idiosyncratic every-day people. No stereotypes here. Just all human, crazy, loveable fun. I kept discovering my favorite story, only to find the next supplanted it - just because the characters are all written so close to the bone. Highly recommended for an experience of the richness of humanity - your own as well as the characters'.
