Folks don’t like mess in a tidy town,” declares young Miss Poppy Wainwright in this rollicking romp of a ride.
In Michael Scott Garvin’s Aunt Sookie & Me, he takes us on an unforgettable journey through Savannah in the turbulent year of 1968.
Both hilarious and heartbreaking, this Southern Gothic classic introduces us to the irrepressible Poppy and her cantankerous ancient Aunt Sookie. All political correctness is buried alongside the dead corpse in the family vegetable garden in the riotous book. Garvin’s follow-up to his award-winning, best seller, A Faithful Son, does not disappoint. The zany cast of characters in this homegrown threat includes the proper socialites of Savannah’s upper crust, a flamboyant ice cream man, and an ornery goat. But don’t let the folksy and fresh recipe fool you, Garvin serves up a big helping of reality, cutting through small-town bigotry and bias.
Through the enlightened eyes of a thirteen-year-old girl, the hilarity and insanity ensues.
Garvin may have earned his entry through the Pearly Gates with his graceful debut, A Faithful Son, but his ticket into heaven may be revoked with the irreverent and side-splitting Aunt Sookie and Me.
