From the Author:

I love all my characters, but I have a special place in my heart for Georgia Bottoms.  She is every bit as brilliant as she is ignorant.  She is full of contradictions but always tries to do her best.  She is searching for meaning in the world, and looks to ants for lessons.  I confess that I love her a little more than most of the people I've invented in my books.  Spending time in her company was exhilarating.  I hope you enjoy reading her story.

Thanks for reading!  Mark Childress

From the Inside Flap:

Georgia Bottoms may be Six Points, Alabama's finest feature--beautiful, worldly, a splendid cook and faithful churchgoer who cares for her aged mother and sells handmade quilts to her grateful neighbors. 
 
Georgia also has a discreet side business, "entertaining" six local gentlemen at night.  Judge Barnett on Sunday, Sheriff Allred on Friday, the doctor on Wednesday (Monday's are Georgia's own).  Each gentleman gets a night tailored to his particular tastes; each has been trained to leave a "gift" to help Georgia get by, and each one thinks he is Georgia's only secret lover.
 
When Preacher Eugene Hendrix (Saturdays) decides he must confess their affair in front of his wife and the entire congregation, Georgia may be able to stop him in time.  But one pin pulled out of her elaborately protected life may be all it takes to send the whole structure to hell in a hurry.  Chin high, posture perfect, her Chanel handbag firmly clasped in her hand, Georgia sets out to save herself, her mama, and her particular notion of virtue from total ruin.  Nothing in Six Points will ever be the same.
 
Written with hilarity, insight, and affection for the many failings of man - and womankind, Georgia Bottoms plumbs the irrepressible workings of the rebellious human heart.  It is proof anew of why Stephen King called Childress's previous novel, One Mississippi, "the funniest novel I have read in ten years!"
