God Save the Sweet Potato Queens

(2001)
A non fiction book by

 
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
