    A collection of essays/articles by ARS. This was a good vacation book, easy to pick up and put down. I enjoyed this book, almost as much as I like Anna Quindlen’s similar type books. ARS wrote this book, her first I think, in the 70’s and it was “reissued” in 1992. I enjoyed reading about the thoughts of one of my favorite authors.

    I've been trying to read some local authors, and I scanned my mom's shelves and found a couple of books by Anne Rivers Siddons, which are set in Atlanta. I really liked this series of essays from the 1970s. They reminded me a little bit of Erma Bombeck, which I read when I was a kid. Very funny and sweet.

    Insights into the author's life, including her incurable habit of adopting lost cats, sometimes to her husband's chagrin. Depicts life in the South. Sometimes sweet and sentimental, a favorite, easy, comfortable read.

    Although the author wrote a new preface to this edition 20 years after the original publication saying that she thought these light essays had held up well, I found them less relevant that I expected. I love her fiction, but was not as enchanted with stories of her own life.

    I loved these essays! As a Southerner, I could relate to much of what Mrs. Siddons describes.

    If you want to know the 60's in the south...this is the book.
