“The most mundane situations become laugh-out-loud scenarios ... Rivenbark is a hoot.” ―Publishers Weekly
“I loved Celia's book; it made me want to get myself a doublewide, head on down to Mama and them's, and start mowing my own lawn. I never knew that Southern folk had time set aside from cooking the best food in the world to grow such marvelous senses of humor. For a Yankee like me, Southern life has always been fascinating, but who knew it was so pants-wetting funny (like watching a hillbilly bang his head repeatedly on the door of the outhouse, because I've seen that, you know)? And there's also the mention of 'making doody,' which is always a shoo-in for me. Celia's book rocks; everyone is going to love it.
P.S.: How much prettier is she than me?” ―Laurie Notaro, author of The Idiot Girls' Action Adventure Club
“When the aliens come to study us, I hope they find Celia Rivenbark's work prominently displayed. She is one of our greatest domestic anthropologists, digging up and airing all those things we like to think others don't know. In other words, the truth. She knows the South and she knows women, but that's just the tip of it all. I think she might very well know everything. I don't know when I have laughed so loud and so long. I am forever a devoted fan.” ―Jill McCorkle, author of Creatures of Habit
“Celia Rivenbark's collection of essays, We're Just Like You, Only Prettier, is a must-read for anybody who wants a funny, no-holds-barred look at today's South, from white trash in all its glorious permutations, to Yuppiedom.” ―Haywood Smith, author of The Red Hat Club
“I laughed so hard reading this book, I began snorting in an unbecoming fashion. I loved it nonetheless. I'll be sending copies to everyone, especially my baby's daddy.” ―Haven Kimmel, author of A Girl Named Zippy
“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

I'm sorry, but this was a let down. I guess I'm a fool for David Sedaris and was hoping to find his female equivalent. Has some good moments, but it all seems so forced.Published 7 months ago by noregreta
Great book! Kept me laughing! However, I bought the audio version of the book, and I wish the woman narrating it wouldn't have made that tongue/mouth sound every time she paused. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Lindsay Welsh
