I didn't know what to expect when this book was recommended to me, but I thought I'd at least read a few of the short chapters and take it from there. And then I kept reading one chapter after another, enjoying the fresh writing, quirky characters and real-life humor in White's stories. Each story is a gem in its own right, and some gems sparkle more than others. Still, the book is a good read, even if you don't know anyone from down South.
