A perfect delight.

This book is a wonderful compilation of small essay's written by a commentator concerning life and living in the South. It's small, each essay takes only a minute or two to read, and its a joy to read. Take a little bit of Southern Comfort from this book as it will warm your heart and lighten your heart. Highly recommended.

The right book for anytime. Read with joy and delight!

What a treat to be able to pick up a book and read with a laugh in your heart. It is a book that can be read under the hairdryer, while waiting in the doctor's office, waiting for your tennis lesson,before you fall asleep and all the while wishing someone was reading it with you so you could laugh and smile together. The stories are short and if you are from the South characters, places, traits, superstitions, and family hit that familiar nerve with unabashed humor. If you are not from the South, "looking in on the Southerner" is like sneeking a look into a secret society and giving you a jolt of joy. This book is recommended for everyone. If you are a Garrison Keillor fan, you will find the portraits in Livingston, Al as real as those in Lake Wobegon. I am sorry the stories ended. Maybe there will be another soon.

Turn South at the Next Magnolia

Southerner Nan Graham catches the essence of the South in her delightful book. While we "yankee's" chuckle, the book is truly enlightning about the South and it's culture. The demistification of the southern "way's" are humerously recanted while enjoying an insight on her "Southern" husband but more importantly her "Southern" West Highland terrier and of course a cat named Sumter. (Don't read the book until you know what Sumter is.)

Loved it!

Nan Graham reads like a fresher, funnier Bailey White. Hilarious insight and observations from a new Southern voice. Passages detailing the eccentricities of her hard-headed husband and his curious family made me laugh out loud. Not too shabby for a first book. Two thumbs up from this jaded cynic. I will send a copy to all my Southern friends and to some sympathetic Yankees who I also count as friends.
