Julia Reed is a fabulous writer. I enjoyed reading all about the South and those special Southern customs, traditions, food -- everything. Once you read this book, please read her other books. You will not be disappointed
If you are a Southerner you will find yourself laughing out loud as you read this one. You would do well to get a sign, "Pay me no mind I'm reading 'Queen of the Turtle Derby' to avoid people asking you, "What's so funny?"
