displaced southerners

A fresh new style for southern writing... finally! A hilarious look at what it means to be from New Orleans -- the characters suffer from breakdowns and obsessions while vacationing in Long Island. Readers of Lives of the Saint will appreciate the continuation of the Collier family saga.

Sweetness and grace

I loved this book. Storey's story is whimsical, sweet, and (her favorite word) poignant, an endearing picture of family love and romantic yearning among a group of oddball transplanted Southerners, all of whom are connected by either kinship or longtime friendship.

Southern comfort

Sportsman's Paradise is hilarious,and yes, poignant. The unforgettable characters are lovable and vividly drawn; the dialogue has great pacing and wit. The author examines the South's particular glamour and dignity with the perception of Walker Percy and the humor of James Wilcox. I enjoyed it so much I have read it a few times.
