About the Author
Praise For Georgia Bottoms…
"Move over, Flannery O'Connor . . . Mark Childress has written another laugh-out-loud Southern classic!"
-author of I Still Dream About You
"The simple act of reading Georgia Bottoms releases tension; buttons are undone, shoes kicked off-man is it hot. Georgia is not perfect, but she's fun to be with."
-Los Angeles Times
"One of the most irresistible liars ever to whip up a batch of pimento cheese sandwiches, the irreverent Georgia Bottoms allows Childress to poke fun at a number of sacred cows."
"Hilarious...Riffs on small-town hypocrisy and racial tensions enliven the plot, but it's the unsinkable Georgia who makes the book delicious."
"Downright hilarious....Childress's Georgia peach is the freshest bad girl to rise from the South since Scarlett O'Hara."
"Skillfully crafted, memorable, and amusing....Georgia, good-looking and devious, is a compelling character who keeps the narrative alive with her survival skills."
"Georgia Bottoms is a lovingly drawn woman, charming, hilarious, heartbreaking, warm and tough, rich in charm and denial and insight. She's an inspired creation in a story filled with serious challenges and fabulous people, good and bad, rich and poor, stunning and appalling, sometimes all at once. They all ring true, and I will never forget them."
-author of Imperfect Birds
