“…grimly hilarious… [Raymond Andrews] has left us with a pair of eccentric, spellbinding yarns about a couple of late-century Georgia women, sisters under the skin, determined to keep their ointment flyless.” ―The Washington Post
“Replete with racy trysts, colorful characters and cheeky humor, Andrews’s book entertains and educates on the follies of human nature.” ―Publishers Weekly
“Andrews, who has been said to blend the sensibilities of Flannery O’Connor and Zora Neale Hurston, creates a double whammy with these two stories…. The tension that plays out is irresistible.” ―The Detroit News
“…a rambunctious collection of down-home tales…like listening to a country-store denizen on speed-with colorful characters and a roller-coaster plotline vying in cheerful anarchy.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Southern gothic worthy of Harry Crews with the wit and dazzle of Clyde Edgerton.” ―Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
American Book Award ―Before Columbus Foundation 1992
