The return of Girls Raised in the South (GRITS), introduced in West's bestselling first novel, CRAZY LADIES, is reason to rejoice. Author and reader West voices her main character, Bitsy, with both a headstrong attitude and an aching longing for true love. Bitsy's mother, raspy from her propensity for bourbon and cigar smoke, is a certifiable "crazy lady" who corresponds with America's first ladies. West's winning way of turning a Southern phrase tickles the ear like a firefly on a summer night. As effortless and engaging as gossiping with neighbors over the back fence, listening to the stories of these mad girls is both amusing and thought-provoking.
