Fiction • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Debra Monk’s hint of sarcasm colors her straightforward reading just as the character of Georgia Bottoms spices up the lives of the staid citizens of her small Alabama town. In her mid-thirties, the single belle brings in an income and maintains a stable home for her mother, who has dementia, and her brother, an AA member who visits bars as regularly as meetings. Monk’s reading conveys conventional characters who provide contrast for Georgia’s fiery inner commentary and feisty dialogues. Georgia juggles six affairs with the power players in town while planning a pretentious party for the female elite. The story's irony sharpens when that luncheon, scheduled for 9/11, ignites political and personal challenges. S.W. © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2011]
