Publisher's Summary

It’s Christmas Eve, 1938, and 15-year-old Cassidy Smith is very pregnant with the child of 40ish Reed Hooker. Cassidy is desperate to marry Reed, Reed is desperate to open Louisiana’s hottest new taxi-dancing emporium and neither are prepared for the arrival of Reed’s wife, Sue Jack Hooker, a dangerous beauty who has just been let out of the penitentiary. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley spins one of her most colorful tales, as she follows a hilarious band of ne’er-do-wells trying to scratch dreams from the Louisiana mud.

Just what is needed on a cold winter day

Would you consider the audio edition of The Lucky Spot (Dramatized) to be better than the print version?

The audio edition is always my preference because the book gives the words the audio gives the performance and it gives the listener total control as to actors physical features, the book tell us what to see.

At first I had a hard time getting into the story. But once I accepted it for the old timey radio broadcast it was performed as, I kind of enjoyed it. After all, at $3.95, the price was right!
