Book #1 Bibliographic Information:
Yankee doodle dixie
Thomas Dunne Books, 2011
A charmingly funny testament to second chances in life and love from the acclaimed author of Whistlin’ Dixie in a Nor’easter.
My aversion to the word ‘dixie’ won’t let me give it even the most cursory of glances. I mean (kicking and screaming) I did listen to my sister’s Dixie Chicks album and I didn’t hate it—Ok I loved it, and who didn’t adore Dixie Carter? You a lie if you say you didn’t. But the Dixie love stops there ’cause in a game of word association if you say Dixie I’d think Jim Crow.
Nonetheless here’s your book.
