really liked it
Read in February, 2011

I believe this is one of Fannie Flagg's first books (if not THE first). She is a master storyteller! I also believe this is a memoir of sorts. Perhaps not an actual biography, but certainly fashioned after her own life. She had me laughing out loud, feeling sorry for her, cheering her on, and of course teary-eyed in places.

She grew up in southern Mississippi, was very poor. Her parents split up when she was 11 yrs. old. She stayed with her daddy because although her momma wanted to bring her along, she couldn't afford to. Her daddy was a drunk who was always trying to quit and never succeeded. She had good friends to help get her through the bad times. And all ended well at 18 yrs. when she left for Atlantic City in 1958.

Good read! Recommended.
