Overview

Pamela King Cable has woven together the music, the language, the religions, and the traditions of the South. The result is Southern Fried Women, a collection of nine short stories about Southern women, and a few men, struggling to find answers to unanswerable questions, hoping for forgiveness, seeking righteousness, and questioning the existence of God in their lives. Cable writes Southern fiction in the true spirit of the rural South. She can ruffle the feathers of the most stoic, mess with the beliefs of the strictest fundamentalists, and reel you into her stories like a stubborn catfish meant for the fryer. In stories with themes ranging from flea markets to coal mine strikes, once you have met her Southern Fried Women, they will be with you forever.

I don

Cable will make you remember your past, smile at your future, cry uncontrollably, and laugh hysterically at her stories. One moment I needed a box of tissues and the next I was in stitches. My family thought I had lost it

This book of short stories is a treat to read! If you love the picture on the cover, you will be happy to see each story starts with a photograph and an introduction from Pamela King Cable explaining her inspiration for the story. I am a huge fan of old photos, so the photos really spoke to me. I found it interesting to get into Pamela's head and see how each character and their story was born. It made the characters and their stories very real to me. The stories are very unique. These are not all feel good, sugary stories. These Southern Fried Women have not had easy lives. They are tough women battling problems some of us can only imagine. In the end, they overcome and stand tall. Some of these stories are dark and disturbing as Pamela even warns us about in the introduction to one such story, Old Time Religion. I found myself gasping and thinking about many of these stories long after I read them. On the flip side, some of the characters had me laughing out loud at their thoughts and antics. I highly recommend this book of short stories. Pamela King Cable is a wonderfully gifted storyteller! I look forward to reading more from her in the future. If you are a fan of Southern fiction, you will enjoy these stories.

Southern Fried Women by Pamela King Cable is a book of short stories that can't help but evoke readers' emotions. I laughed, and I cried. It begins with "Southern Fried Women," which was one of my favorites. "Beach Babies" and "Coal Dust on my Feet" were my two other favorites," sad, but awesome stories. Ms. Cable showcases the South in honesty and realism and for characterization, you'll stumble upon a few swear words, but some stories have none. If you like Southern reads with real Southern flavor, she delivers a book you won't be able to put down. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to do anything else but finish it. Her writing is humorous and real. She knows the South, and her writing shows it, so I had to give the book the five stars it so well deserves. I'm glad I didn't miss this one.
