Secondhand Smokeby Patty Friedmann
She's nasty, she's prejudiced, and she's finally killed her husband (or at least, that's what her kids believe). She may be the most obnoxious woman in all of New Orleans. But by the end of this remarkable novel, readers will also find Jerusha Bailey infuriatingly lovable-a hilarious antiheroine who "takes life's hardest punches and survives" (Larry Baker, author of The Flamingo Rising).
Author Biography: Patty Friedmann is the author of three previous novels, Odds, Eleanor Rushing, and The Exact Image of Mother.

Second Hand Smoke is a quirky, funny, poignant and wonderful book that captures meanness and pathos. It is entertaining and literary. There are scenes in this book that make you want to call up a friend and read them. It is just fabulous.
