Judith Ivey is back with more divine history of the Ya-Yas, including how they met in the first place. (Teensy stuffing a pecan into her nose, greatly impressing her peers, is one origin story.) The episodes here include childhood moments of the Petite Ya-Yas and even the Très Petites (the grandchildren). A favorite: Vivi's son Baylor at age 5 or so appears on a kids' TV program and insists upon singing a song he has composed, all the while desperately needing to take a dump. Ivey exhibits her usual genius for accents and personalities. This book may be just as much fun on the page as in her narration, but I don't see how.
