    One thought on “Southern Sin: True Stories of the Sultry South and Women Behaving Badly”

    1. I know, it's a book with my essay in it, I'm hardly going to give it one star. But not only is my essay, 'No Other Gods,' objectively good (I maintain); the whole compilation is an illuminating, thought-provoking, highly-scented description of what it is to be a woman in the south in the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Longer review to come when I'm not typing with my thumb.

    2. First off I want you to know I won this book on First reads. Thank you The women of the south, wow, who would have known. Interesting and unusual read, somewhat unbelievable too. I found myself asking, "did that really happen". Overall it was a fast read read of several short stories.

    3. I was given this book from first reads.I liked this book. Like any collection some are better then other. However , all are well written. I love the feeling of this book. In every story you can almost picture the south from the way the speak to the scenery. As a southern myself i really enjoyed that. However it did take me a little bit to get in the flow with this book. Fast read when you do get into it. I recommend this one for anyone looking for good short stories and it makes a great summer f [...]

    4. liked: The On Ramp Dancing in New Orleans Rum-Running Queen Willie drove muscle car to occupy cops while moonshine did their business. They moved 1 million gallons of whiskey and 100 million gallons of moonshine.She went to court but witnesses blamed Capone and she went free. Willie retired and disappeared.

    5. I won this book from a giveaway. It was an easy book to get through due to the shortness of the stories, but the content wasn't all that engaging. Some of the anecdotes were interesting, but others fell short of expectations. Though there might be some people who find it more interesting, this just simply wasn't a book I would typically read.

    6. A well-curated collection of non-fiction essays. Current and telling about women's experiences, I'd recommend this for female readers.
