Sonia Rodriguez asked Frances Mayes:

I must say sorry I just heard of the memoir and will seek this out purchase very soon. In 3 sentences how would describe the book to grab my attention? Ty Sonia

Frances Mayes I think Under Magnolia is my best writing but that may be because it is still hot off the press. The South has such a powerful landscape that it forms the people who live there and I felt it's shaping influence strongly. I hope that those around me in those pages come across as they were--tragic, funny, grandiose, complex.
