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

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!

What a refreshing and wonderful book. The characters are colorful and the town is someplace I would love to have grown up in. Great reading.

Funny, serious, and compelling, this novel focuses on Dena Nordstrom, an urban heroine who is brainy, beautiful, and a rising star of 1970's televison. Replete with a zany cast of characters, this is the story of a woman who tries to go home again, not knowing where home or love lie.
