Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Like most Southern girls, author Jill Conner Browne wasn't born into royalty. But while growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, she realized she possessed a few regal gifts. She could wave well, smile while showing maximum teeth, and appear interested in anything. Destiny soon called -- donning sequins and a tiara (of course) and gathering her court of fellow royals, she proclaimed them all "The Sweet Potato Queens" and set out to better the world with their Southern-fried wisdom.

Review by Library Journal (1999-02-01)

Let me say right up front that I had never heard of the Sweet Potato Queens until their book landed on my front porch. If you too are unenlightened, let me inform you that they are a group of women in green sequined dresses, red wigs, and "enhanced" figures that participate in parades and other events in the South, led by founding Queen (and humor writer) Browne. Their tongue-in-cheek advice includes chapters on maintaining the queenly look, magic words to get any man to do your bidding, and what to eat when tragedy strikes.

The book includes recipes ("chocolate stuff" for when you're feeling down) and addresses (where to order fake teeth). But chapters like "The Five Men You Must Have in Your Life at All Times" and "Men Who May Need Killing, Quite Frankly" just weren't all that funny. Some of the stories were touching, and there's more than a little truth to all of them, but most of this book is a bit heavy-handed. Strictly a regional title; not recommended for most libraries.
