Rules for the Southern Rulebreake: Missteps and Lessons Learned

Availability: In stock
"Katherine Snow Smith's sure voice, deft pen, hilarious sense of humor and always original slant on things offer the reader much to enjoy in these delightful essays--and also much to identify with, especially for another Southern girl. Her delightful, humorous accounts always convey a deeper truth--about self-image, especially for women; about raising children; about an early death in the family and the later loss of a friend; about politics and belief--about life itself. Snow Smith's own lifetime of writing and observant living is distilled in this kind, original, and compulsively readable book."
--Lee Smith, author of Fair and Tender Ladies and winner of the Robert Penn Warren Award for Fiction and the Southern Book Critics Circle Award

"Katherine's ability to observe her life from the balcony while it plays out on stage is a gift to her readers. Her keen perspective--which is unapologetically southern and chock-full of grit, forgiveness, and humor--reminds us that we all aspire to love well and to laugh until our face hurts."
--Charla Muller, author of Pretty Takes Practice: A Southern Woman's Search for the Real Meaning of Beauty

"Rules for the Southern Rulebreaker is a warm, genuine memoir about living fully beyond the bounds of others' expectations."
--Foreword Reviews

"Smith writes of going her own way with humor and honesty, encouraging readers not to take themselves too seriously and find value in friends and family. Readers of essays from Sloane Crosley, Samantha Irby, or Bailey White will laugh out loud."
