4.0 out of 5 stars A Guide to the Guide, September 23, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Being Dead Is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies Guide To Hosting the Perfect Funeral (Hardcover)
As a Southern church musician, reared by a grandmother born in the late 1800's the details of the customs, societal expectations,family eccentricities and community fixtures are "dead on." (pun intended) The friendly(?) competition between churches and individuals illustrates the status-consciousness of the matrons in towns and small cities. The recipes remind me of the comfort food of my youth. And no one has more characters than South.

If you are from the South, you'll recognize the people and the ideology. If you're not from the South, this is a great introduction to our customs, cuisine and contrariness.
