Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for “Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena”:

“[A] rambunctiously charming essay collection...as refreshing and bracing as a mint julep... Even the most hopeless Yankee will have no trouble getting in touch with her inner Poultry Princess.”–Vogue

“[An] effervescent collection of essays...charming...amusing.”–The New York Times Book Review

“Not since Eudora Welty has anybody captured in such sophisticated, often mordant prose the brave, gracious, perverse, reckless, God-fearing Southern soul like Julia reed. Whether she’s holding forth on fried chicken and catfish, guns, booze, cockfights, pestilence, or Southern womanhood, Reed loads both barrels and never misses the target. As a Carolina Tarheel, I rejoiced, cringed, marveled, and laughed myself sick at Reed’s outrageous tales and savvy insights, and I defy anybody–Southerner and Yankee alike–to come up for are after reading the first chapter.”--James Villas, author of Between Bites and My Mother’s Southern Kitchen

“In this engaging collection of essays, Mississippi native Reed presents a fresh and eclectic portrait of the South...she renders an honest portrayal of the quirks, foibles and wonders of the region.”--Publishers Weekly

“She’s clear-eyed, raucously funny, and a natural story teller, which makes her something of a southern phenomenon herself.”-John Berendt, author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil

“a playful collection of essays that humorously and humbly celebrates the quirkiness that lies deep in the heart of Dixie.”—Booklist

Review

"Julia Reed is another Southern writer with a fine hand for storytelling and cooking. Though you'll want to cook from her book, first you'll want to take it to the porch hammock to read. Each tasty tale - from her collard green chronicle to her Frozen Assets anecdote on ice cream - will whet your appetite for more."--The Post and Courier (SC)
“[A] charming collection. Reed's wit and her eye for the telling historical detail shine through.” –The Times Picayune
"No matter what your tastes, Ham Biscuits has something to tempt your taste buds."--The Clarion Ledger
