Inhaltsangabe: Hallelujah! The Sweet Potato Queens are back!
In 1999, Jill Conner Browne, royal boss of Jackson, Mississippi's own glorious Sweet Potato Queens, introduced them to the world in the hilarious bestseller The Sweet Potato Queen's Book of Love (which contained everything you ever need to know about Love, Life, Men, Marriage, and the importance of Being Prepared). But, fortunately for us, that was not the final chapter in the Queens' splendid saga. The Sweet Potato Queens still have plenty of stuff to say and valuable wisdom to impart about how they went from being Cute Girls to Fabulous Women, including:
Dating for the Advanced, or Advancing
The Joys of Marriage -- if you must
More Delicious, Death-Defying Recipes
The Promise for Men -- six little words that will make any woman Lolling About -- the official activity of the Sweet Potato Queens
And, of course,
The All-True Story of the Two Most Wonderful Men in the World
Not to mention:
Reader Mail -- honoring the adventures of brand-new Wannabes and Honorary Queens from around the world
If you haven't met the Sweet Potato Queens yet, this is the introduction you've been waiting for. If you already know the joys of Queendom, this is your official welcome-back party.
Rezension: Fans of Jill Conner Browne's hilarious advice and queenly assurance should mix up a margarita and prepare to enjoy themselves with her book God Save the Sweet Potato Queens. Whether you're still a Cute Girl or have made it to the glorified ranks of Fabulous Woman, the allure of big hair, utter confidence, and a sparkly tiara is easily understandable. Forget "less is more"--as Jill and all the Tammys can tell you, "more is more, and also better." As a follow-up to The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love, this gem touches on many of the same topics--marriage, motherhood, fiancés, the Promise, and all-important attitude and style. Added are a ton of side-splitting stories from fans around the country, who are apparently busy starting up their own royal families with names like the "Menopause Mafia" and "Brazen Strumpets"; one startling tale of a mom at the end of her rope who bursts into "Jeremiah was a bullfrog" in public as a last-ditch effort to get her kids to behave wins Conner Browne's award for mother of the year. The chapter titled "How to Be a Girl" is one of the greatest instruction manuals ever for turning men into putty--the big secret, it seems, is a large bow in your hair. Who knew? One big surprise at the end of this book is hiding under the title "Matters of the Heart." Here you'll read a touching homage to a much-beloved friend of the author, and it will have you running for the nearest hanky. If you find yourself in need of a little pick-me-up after this sad tale, turn to the recipe section, where Twinkie Pie, Dinksey's Gooey Bars, and Death Chicken are guaranteed to cheer you right up. --Jill Lightner
