TUESDAY, June 14th at 7pm: SOUTHERN LADIES & GENTLEMEN

The writings of Florence King continue as Trolley Trollop presents Southern Ladies and Gentlemen (1993),

"Looking for guidance in understanding the ways and means of Southern culture? Look no further. Florence King’s celebrated field guide to the land below the Mason-Dixon Line is now blissfully back in print, just in time.

"The Failed Southern Lady’s classic primer on Dixie manners captures such storied types as the Southern Woman (frigid, passionate, sweet, bitchy, and scatterbrained–all at the same time), the Self-Rejuvenating Virgin, and the Good Ole Boy in all his coats and stripes. (The Clinton questions–is he a G.O.B. or isn’t he?–Miss king covers in her hilarious new Afterword.)

"No one has ever made more sharp, scathing, affectionate, real sense out of the land of the endless Civil War than Florence King in these razor-edged pages."
