Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is the sweet and sad and goofy monkey-dance of life, as performed by a bevy of unforgettable Southern belles in a verdant garden of moonlit prose. Poignantly coo-coo, the Ya-Yas…will prance, priss, ponder, and party their way into your sincere affection.” Tom Robbins, author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
“A very entertaining and, ultimately, deeply moving novel about the complex bonds between mother and daughter.” Washington Post
“Wells’ voice is uniquely her own, funny and generous and full of love and heartbreak, in that grand Louisiana literary tradition of transforming family secrets into great stories.” New Orleans Times-Picayune
“An insightful, delicious novel.” Oregonian
“Ivey is magnificent in her performance of Wells’ sprawling, delicious novel of lifelong female friendship and mother-daughter tension and reconciliation…Ivey performs each character with conviction and emotion. Through her performance, listeners can see the characters, colorful events, and the tangle and friction of close-knit, complicated relationships.” Publishers Weekly
“A wonderfully irreverent look at life in small-town Louisiana from the thirties on up to the present through the eyes of the Ya-Yas, a gang of merry, smart, brave, poignant, and unforgettable goddesses.” Booklist (starred review)

Rebecca Wells, actress, playwright, and New York Times bestselling author of Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, Little Altars Everywhere, Ya-Yas in Bloom, and The Crowning Glory of Calla Lily Ponder, was born in Louisiana. While many fans assume her work is autobiographical, Wells maintains that her stories are just that—stories. Little Altars Everywhere, which won the Western States Book Award and was a New York Times bestseller, and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, a #1 New York Times bestseller and winner of the 1999 Adult Trade ABBY Award, have given Wells a dominant place in American literature. She lives in Washington State with her husband and her King Charles Cavalier Spaniel, Mercy.
