Fannie Flagg brings a real down-home quality to her reading of her own novel. The colloquialisms of Alabama and the sounds of Southern voices give a touching and lighthearted aura to the story of a TV anchorwoman's struggle to rise to the top of network news. The juxtaposition of fame, corporate TV machinations and small-town sensibilities are covered well in this abridgment, and Fannie Flagg makes listening to her intriguing novel rewarding entertainment.
