An "unleashed love song" to her late grandmother, Nickole Brown's collection brings her brassy, bawdy, tough-as-new-rope grandmother to life. With hair teased to Jesus, mile-long false eyelashes, and a white Cadillac Eldorado with atomic-red leather seats, Fanny is not your typical granny rocking in a chair. Instead, think of a character that looks a lot like Eva Gabor in Green Acres, but darkened with a shadow of Flannery O'Connor. A cross-genre collection that feels like a novel, this book is both a collection of oral history and a lyrical and moving biography that wrestles with the complexities of the South, including poverty, racism, and domestic violence.

Two Thumbs Way UP!
One of the best books I've read all year. Nickole Brown pulls at the heart with stories of this incredible woman named Fanny. So funny and sad and amazing.
This is great
Really unique. Nickole Brown, I love you. I wish I could see more of the woman Fanny. What a character.
