Southern Ladies and Gentlemen Book Review Summary

Detailed Plot Synopsis of Southern Ladies and Gentlemen

In her first book (1975), sharp-tongued and witty journalist Florence King provides an anthropological portrait of all the various types of Southern males and females. From Debutantes, Dowagers, and Dear Old Things to all the different kinds of Good Old Boys, King explains their crazy motivations and behaviors. The fascination Southern women have for one another's plumbing, and the critical importance of wedding announcements are also dissected in this breezy and urbane set of essays.
