"Told in the clear, strong voice of Sarah Claiborne, a precocious teenager who reads Kafka and Camus, Southern Fried Lies is the story of an Atlanta family in crisis. The Claibornes appear picture-perfect: Edward, a successful architect; Catherine, active in the community; four model children. But life at "Tara" is not what it seems. Catherine's sole focus is her oldest son, Ben, who abruptly leaves home and refuses to communicate with her. Sarah becomes the target of her mother's wrath, and Edward is too busy--or unable--to help. When Catherine's behavior threatens the whole family's safety, Sarah takes on the task of "fixing" her. The novel is set against the backdrop of social unrest roiling across the South in the early 1960s"--Page 4 of cover.
