Once again, Flagg's humor and respect and affection for her characters shine forth. Many inhabit small-town or suburban America. But this time, her heroine is urban: a brainy, beautiful, and ambitious rising star of 1970s television. Dena Nordstrom, pride of the network, is a woman whose future is full of promise, her present rich with complications, and her past marked by mystery.

She does an okay job of describing life in small town America, but when does the story start? 3/4 of the way through the book it started to get interesting. But by then I was just reading to get to the end. I'll try the other books in the Elmwood Springs series.

Fannie Flagg is an exceptional story teller. I loved the story as it stands on it's own, but it was a special treat to revisit characters and places I had come to know in her earlier book, "Standing in the Rainbow," which is a long-time favourite.
