In this collection, which won the National Book Award, Ellen Gilchrist creates an unforgettable group of Southern women, enchanted and enchanting who cavort through life, in and out of bars, marriages, and divorces, through the world of art and culture, drug busts, lovers' arms and even earthquakes, in an attempt to find, if not happiness, at least some satisfaction. Throughout these stories, one hears echoes of Flannery O'Connor and Eudora Welty, but Ms. Gilchrist has her own unique literary voice - and it is outrageously funny, moving, tragic, and always appealing.
