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
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!
Wonderful book - funny, sad and perfectly southern. Fanny Flagg books are always so heartwarming.
HAts off to Fannie Flagg, again! This romp from New York City to the southern small town is brimming with wonderful characters. You get on this ride and don't want it to stop!
