Fannie Flagg takes us on a journey to a South that only Southerners know, to a time when 'Blue Velvet' was played at the Senior Prom, and into the life of Daisy Fay Harper, a sassy, truth-telling heroine who just can't stya out of trouble or out of our hearts. What's more she tells us everything - from what (or who) made her Daddy and Momma split up to what is really stashed in the freezer of her family's malt shop.

Daisy Fay is coming of age in the Gulf Coast's Shell Beach, which is The End of the Road of the South. The folks who head for Florida haven't discovered it yet (and aren't likely to), but it's a dandy place to meet local VIPs like hard-drinking jimmy Snow, who uses his crop dusting plane for both transprtation and carrying out revenge; Mrs Dot, who is trying to hold Jr Debutant meetings in the back of the Bait Shop; and Daisy's own Daddy, who comes up with a mortgage scheme in which his daughter has to return from the dead in a carefully orchestrated miracle. They're all part of the fun that takes us down home, back to the '50s, adn into the best story ever written east of Texas...or maybe anywhere else.



I really enjoyed this - a gentle, funny tale fo life in teh South during the 50s. Daisy Fay was an endearing heroine who kept me hooked on her daily life.

I enjoyed it too Camis. It was quite different from other things I've been reading recently and gave a really interesting insight into the backwaters of the American South. Some of the things Daisy went through had me in stitches and I loved the way she told early on of the times her father had accidents and near misses with her.

Shame I was away for the D swap as I was going to play this!!!
