What People are Saying About This

Robert Stone

Blanche Boyd is irreplaceable. There is no cast of mind with quite the same savor, no humor quite so dry, no insights which reverberate in quite the same pitch. Her style [is] sure, true, and vastly pleasurable.

Sad and funny, bittersweet and tender, don't miss this book. Once I started reading, I couldn't put it down. The characters are finely drawn and their quirky traits and sarcastic exchanges make this a book I will long remember. I loved Elllen and her crazy southern family...hope you do too.

this is a hilarious and well-written book. it touches on the ideas that your family can be your best friend- or your worst enemy and that sometimes all you really want from life is to be yourself.
