Southern Lady Code: Essays (Large Print / Library Binding)
Yes, this book of essays is absolutely hilarious and full of southern witticisms and peculiarities, but it is also highly intelligent. I loved Helen Ellis’s short story collection, American Housewife, and these essays dig into the wonder and weirdness of her real life with the same zeal.— Johanna

“I had forgotten how to laugh, but after opening this book and starting to read, I couldn’t help myself—it just came bubbling up. What a wonderful thing it is to hold in your hands something that has the power to make one erupt with hoots and howls. Helen Ellis is a treasure and a gift from the gods; she tells it like it is in Southern lady speak and we love her all the more for the joy she has given us.”
