Professional reviews

"The joys, battles, struggles, and successes of several Louisiana women, the "Ya-Yas," are celebrated in this wildly popular novel. It's an often funny book full of Southern-tinged angst about the relationships between women, and between that most complex of women's relationship: mother and daughter. Tony award winner Judith Ivey takes palpable pleasure in the chance to portray free-spirited Southern women. She gives full measure to these self-dramatizing women, providing voices that range from honeyed New Orleans French to cigarette-and-bourbon hoarse. The characters she inhabits include everyone from the gentlest lady to the toughest broad. It's an amazing performance. A.C.S. 2003 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
