If the preacher's wife's petticoat showed, the ladies would make the talk last a week. But on July 5, 1906, things took a scandalous turn. That was the day E. Rucker Blakeslee, proprietor of the general store and barely three weeks a widower, eloped with Miss Love Simpson¿a woman half his age and, worse yet, a Yankee! On that day, fourteen-year-old Will Tweedy's adventures began and an unimpeachably pious, deliciously irreverent town came to life. Not since To Kill A Mockingbird has a novel so deftly captured the subtle crosscurrents of small-town Southern life. Olive Ann Burns classic bestseller brings to vivid life an era that will never exist again, exploring timeless issues of love, death, coming of age, and the ties that bind families and generations.… (més)

    On Agate Hill de Lee Smith (ReneeReader)
    ReneeReader: While more serious than Cold Sassy Tree most of the time, On Agate Hill taps into a similar vein of Southern life in the time soon after the war. In this case it’s a girl coming of age, not a boy. On Agate Hill reads like a diary too.

    The Darling Dahlias and the Silver Dollar Bush de Susan Wittig Albert (ReneeReader)
    ReneeReader: While the Darling Dahlias are a mystery series, they’re well written and researched by the experienced hand of Susan Wittig Albert. They feature a set of interesting women during the war in a small Southern town. The tales and characters are often humorous although usually a bit lighter. A true flavor of Southern life in the past.… (més)

    TheDivineOomba: The Reivers by William Faulkner has a similar feel as Cold Sassy, with a similar leading character. But the Reivers is a bit more dark and has a more solid story.

Het leven zoals het is in de zuidelijke staat Georgia. Interessant tijds- en streekportret. ( )
  Baukis | Mar 21, 2022 |
One of my all time favorite books. ( )

Wonderful! ( )

The characters of Grandpa and Will Tweedy are two of my favorites in all of literature. While the story sometimes stretches credulity to put Will Tweedy in a position to narrate, it is a convincing depiction of life in its joy, sorrow and messiness. ( )

One of the "Southernest" Southern Fiction books I've ever read. It's a rambling sort of book. It doesn't tell one story, but a number of them, weaving in and out of each other. Because of this, even when it's at its best, the book doesn't propel the reader to the next chapter, because as often as not, the next chapter will totally change the subject. As such, it took me a while to plug through it, even though I mostly enjoyed it.
Will Tweedy is narrating the tale, telling about approximately one year, back when he was 14 years old, living in Cold Sassy, Georgia, in 1906. The central character of the book is Will's belligerent, demanding, outlandish, grandfather, who marries a woman who works in his store a few weeks after the death of his first wife. The scandal shocks the town and horrifies Will's mother, and his Aunt Loma. And that sets the first ball rolling for all that is yet to come. There are far too many little tales to mention them in a brief review. I would have liked to have gotten to know Lightfoot McClendon a little better though. ( )

Three weeks after Granny Blakeslee died, Grandpa came to our house for his early morning snort of whiskey, as usual, and said to me, "Will Tweedy? Go find your mama, then run up to yore Aunt Loma's and tell her I said git on down here. I got something to say. And I ain't a -go'n say it but once't."
