What I'm reading
We did a book review for our March issue on The Cracker Queen by Lauretta Hannon, and today I (Nikki) gave Ginger a copy. So that is what Ginger is reading now. I'm so happy someone (in my office) is reading what I tell them to read. But, really, everyone should run out and buy a copy of the Cracker Queen right now. It is hilarious. I really couldn't put it down.
Here is a peak at my book review on The Cracker Queen.
“Live out loud, laugh hard and love life to death.” This is the motto of the Cracker Queen, and Lauretta Hannon is a Cracker Queen through and through. Lauretta’s memoir is hilarious but also filled with touching moments and words of wisdom. There are certain characteristics that a Cracker Queen must have—“...without them we’re just mean ol’ white trash—the unhappiest and most havoc-wreaking creatures in the whole trailer park,” the author writes. Lauretta’s book will prove that you’ve probably got some Cracker Queen in you, even if you don’t know it. Whether you have a crazy aunt Carrie or throw packs of cigarettes to chain gangs working by the roads, you will find something to identify with in The Cracker Queen.
If you aren’t a Cracker Queen before you pick up the book, you will want to be one by the time you finish it!
For the complete book review and an interview with author Lauretta Hannon, pick up a copy of our March issue.
