    Twenty stars

    Insights into southern culture, horror stories, and full-out belly laughs, this book has it all. I can't believe this author is not better known--actually on the NYT bestseller list. You don't have to be southern to appreciate and understand what she's talking about, but it really helps if you are. Her take on the difference in husbands and wives when they're sick is at once funny, sad, and unfortunately, all too true.

    An author you have to read

    Belly laughs, graphic pictorials in your head. I am not Southern, but yet completely understood what the author had to say. Read if you want to laugh out loud, and loose yourself in in light, but cannot-put-this-book down way

    Amusing essay collection

    This amusing essay collection focuses on the southern perspective and home life. The book is broken into three categories: ¿At Home¿, ¿The South¿, ¿And Everywhere Else¿. The contributions are lighthearted amusing and fun to read as a variety of subjects from mama tips to spiked NASA Tang to Wrestlemania are shredded and diced like slaw at a fad diet explosion. Nothing is sacred though nothing is totally gored not even Al. From family recipes to the Rock and his wife Dr. Ms. Rock on to Adam West, Celia Rivenbark provides the below the Mason-Dixon demarcation line but above the Mickey Mouse border look at life. If you have to ask who Adam West is, you¿re probably too young for this sassy slice of Southern sympathy served with ice tea but no grits.------------- Harriet Klausner

    A right good read

    Take the whole YaYa Sisterhood, throw in a couple of Sweet Potato Queens, add a dab of Jeff Foxworthy, a tad of Dave Barry and a teense of Erma Bombeck and you have Mama Celia's recipe for a good time. Even though Misseriz Rivenbark is Southern --let there be no doubt--ya'll folks from up North can appreciate her take on holiday newsletters (always one in the family), big fake bazumbas and those blasted amish bread starters. You got to love a woman who understands the concept of respect whether it refers to a discount store ('The KMarts' or 'The WalMarts') or an older neighbor lady (always stick 'Miss' or 'Aunt' in front of the first name), but who will--with all due respect, of course--ask where did Lorena Bobbitt get a knife THAT sharp? And speaking of sharp, that's what the book is. It is sharp. And right good, too.
