A great look into life in Southwest Georgia where Baily White lives. It is filled with quirky charactors.

This was kind of fun, pretty light and easy to read. There were a few stories within the book that I felt didn't seem to go anywhere, but generally I enjoyed this. It was nice reading for bedtime.

Quirky and amusing set of characters populate this novel. Enjoyable.

Characters don't get any better than this. A driveway down the street from me is flanked on each side by towering, colored "plaster" eagles. After this book, I always smile when I drive by them.

Bailey White introduces her audiance to the peculiar yet lovable people who inhabit a small town in south Georgia. Meet serious, studious Roger, the peanut pathologist and unlikely love object of half the town's women. Meet Roger's ex-mother-in-law, Louise, who teams up with an ardent typographer in an attempt to attract outer-space invaders with specific combinations of letters and numbers. And meet Della, the bird artist who captivates Roger with the sensible but enigmatic notes she leaves on things she throws away at the Dumpster. This book is not as good as her "Mama Makes Up Her Mind" and "Sleeping at the Starlite Motel." I don't know if it's because these stories weren't as captivating to me as her stories about Mama, but her scratchy voice seemed scratchier and more difficult to listen to than on previous tapes.

From Louise, who attempts to attract outer-space invaders with combinations of letters and numbers, to Roger, her ex-son-in-law, who is the peanut pathologist and love object for half of the town's women, to Della, the bird artist, the folks of a small town in southern Georgia provide a heartbreakingly tender, often hilarious insight into small town southern living.

A disappointment. Utterly without plot and filled with eccentric characters who never become more than names on a page, this episodic tale of a Georgia plant pathologist, his family and friends, wanders pointlessly until it dribbles to an unsatisfying end.

This was a delightful, light hearted story. Very interesting characters, a little romance and a little craziness all tossed together.

No deeper message or long-lasting impact, but I really enjoyed reading this book.

This is the third book I have read by Bailey White, and although her characters are fun, and created based on real people, I don't enjoy her style of writing. This book felt very much like her short stories, it was very choppy with both stories and characters. It ended in a completely strange and abrupt manner as well. Perhaps she is setting up for a sequel? it's a quick, fun read, but not my favorite author.
