You aint got nothin left here but enemies and a mama that’s gone drive you to drink. You done burned ever bridge there is and you ain’t never gone get another boyfriend in this town and everbody know it. So don’t walk your white butt to New York, run it.
We should all be so fortunate to have characters like Minnie, Abileen and Ms. Skeeter in our lives: so selfless they make you feel hopeful, so loving they make you feel warm and so fierce in their convictions they actually make you feel fearful and all in the face of a deep ignorance that made you feel sick. Even if you haven’t already experienced ladies like them in your life, they were well-enough developed that you grew to know them. This was an easy read even though the material was often hard to stomach, and some of the lines had me laughing out loud. Chocolate pie will never be the same!
