Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena collects a bevy of wise, witty, often hilarious essays by Julia Reed. In classic Dixie storytelling fashion, Reed wends her way through the South - from politics, religion, and women to weather, pestilence, guns, and what she calls "drinking and other Southern pursuits" - with a rare blend of literary elegance and plainspoken humor.
