“The funniest book I've read in years.” ―Cosmopolitan
“She is witty, charming, infuriating, pretentious, naive, shrewd, saucy, innocent, and outrageous. Sometimes her mind works like an Ole Miss cheerleader who jis loves to twirl her li'l skirt; sometimes she is as analyticall cool as the most insightful ethnologist...Her prose sparkles like bubbles in champagne.” ―New Orleans States-Item
“Though the book is terribly funny--viciously, lovingly, outrageously funny--it is also a remarkable piece of popular anthropology...This book is to Southern manners and morals what Trollope's and Austen's novels were to English life in previous centuries.” ―Journal of American Folklore
“A polished sophisticated dissection. Only a Southerner could have written it.” ―Greenville [South Carolina] News
“This is the best book ever written abou the South...And on top of that it's delectably funny.” ―Chattanooga Times
As a transplant to the south this writing made me laugh out loud. Several times. It is a book that will be kept on the shelf and reread.

I only made it through 22 percent of the book. It is sooo boring! I was born and raised in the South and thought this might be entertaining. Boy was I wrong!Published 7 months ago by Sarah Pratt
