I bought this on a whim, my daughter is a GRIT (girl raised in the South) and I lived in Georgia ten years. I thought this book would be irritating, another silly book - but I found this to be a series of (mostly) good essay like chapters about growing older in a youthful world, marriage, friendships, children, etc. I think Thompson did a pretty good job here. I would use this book as a favor at a girlfriend party. I might even discreetly place a bookmark in areas where I thought friends might find applicable information for their own lives! ( )

Humerous essays about family life from a Southern woman's perspective. The essays cover familiar topics from swimsuit shopping to batteling with squirrels in the attic. It's not a badly written book, but the essays brought nothing new to the subjects. Others have been here before and done it better. A book I'd pick up to glance through when I have nothing else to read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 089587329X, Paperback)

SWAG started as a lark when Thompson began a monthly mailing of her humorous essays about ordinary events from a Southern woman's perspective. Over several years, her subscription list grew to nearly 5,000 people in 28 states. Covering topics that range from swimsuit shopping, to family reunions, to squirrel battles, to sick children, to cemetery etiquette, this volume will fit right alongside the Sweet Potato Queens and the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.
