Margbar11 Awww, one of my favorites---laughed out loud. I must read it again---it's been 20 years I bet...

Suzanne So far it's a very confusing book for me. I will be reading reviews and asking questions about it when I'm done.

Margbar11 Well, it's been 20 years... but as I recall, it's steeped in Southern culture---even a generation or so prior to ours... it may be a foreign cultural language for my dear friend from the Great White North. ;-)

Suzanne LOL - I was shocked by how he portrayed the southerners as just wanted to sit around and chat all day. It really gave me an insight to some of my southern co-workers that I never had before. I am thinking of reading it again as I don't think I got the jist of what he was trying to do until I was approx. 3/4 of the way done.
