Michael Lee West's indomitable G.R.I.T.S. (Girls Raised in the South) are back -- enduring rough times with all the grace and outrageous flair expected of true Southern heroines.
Bitsy Wentworth -- fleeing yet another relationship nightmare in a “borrowed” red Corvette, with her baby daughter and a recently acquired “demon child” -- has an APB out on her for attempted murder (she broke her ex-husband's nose with a frozen slab of ribs that she purchased at the Piggly Wiggly). Her mama, Dorothy, is writing letters to First Ladies from inside the Central State Asylum, while Aunt Clancy Jane has completed her inevitable progression from hippie to local Crazy Cat Lady. Three generations of unforgettable Crystal Falls, Tennessee, women -- and the men they attract, enrage, and confound -- are courageously plowing through tumultuous lives of compound disaster . . . and hoping the chaos the next wrong step leads to won't be insurmountable.

The return of Girls Raised in the South (GRITS), introduced in West's bestselling first novel, CRAZY LADIES, is reason to rejoice. Author and reader West voices her main character, Bitsy, with both a headstrong attitude and an aching longing for true love. Bitsy's mother, raspy from her propensity for bourbon and cigar smoke, is a certifiable "crazy lady" who corresponds with America's first ladies. West's winning way of turning a Southern phrase tickles the ear like a firefly on a summer night. As effortless and engaging as gossiping with neighbors over the back fence, listening to the stories of these mad girls is both amusing and thought-provoking.
