I found this one kind of funny, but more than that, it was a really well done storyline. I found myself rooting for Dena, hoping she'd find her way into her life, her character felt so empty for the vast majority of the book, it was sad really. Fannie Flagg is a most excellent writer, her characters jump off of the page at you. While Dena was meeting with Tennesee Williams, I could smell the ocean air of New Orleans and hear him talking... very well done. Definitely worth a read!

I usually love Fannie Flagg, but this book was not quite up to her usual standards. The plot only works if you keep in mind the time setting; otherwise the ending is slightly disappointing

The theme of the novel is about change and how the main charater (an Oprah-like personality)surives all her life long struggles. The author jumps around a lot in years and time periods, but I thing it adds to the story and makes it more fun to follow. Great plot, great characters, and the charm of the south shines through. At times you will cry, at other times you will laugh, wonderful book!
