Summary

Summary

This often sweet, occasionally angry, but mostly hilarious true story of one Southern woman's swim through the murky waters of marriage and divorce is a quirky gem. Judy Conner refers to her former husband simply as "That X," which is perfectly understandable considering some of the antics he pulled. Although the stories of her X are sometimes humiliating, they are always funny. And Conner makes one thing perfectly clear. She and her X shared a love-albeit a surreal one-that was completely true.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Connor has] achieved a commendable feat in combining memoir, cookbook and self-help book into one funny-as-hell package.” Publishers Weekly
Sweet Potato Queens fans will definitely clamor for it, and they won't be disappointed. Conner is not only funny and sharp; she also manages to inject real warmth into her tale.” Booklist
“I cried laughing and sometimes I just plain cried over Judy Conner's hilarious, bittersweet—but mostly really sweet—account of the wild ride that was her marriage and its aftermath. Adding to its considerable charms are the fact that it begins and ends with a fine brown dog and provides an excellent recipe for curried fruit—not to mention spot-on insights into New Orleans culture—in between.” Julia Reed, author of Queen of the Turtle Derby and Other Southern Phenomena
“I am keeping Southern Fried Divorce on my nightstand indefinitely. For those of us who need a big laugh before bed and simultaneously want to put the fear of God in our husbands, this book is the ticket. Judy Conner writes with such hilarity and truth, you'll read this one time and time again. I loved it!” Adriana Trigiani, author of the Big Stone Gap trilogy and The Queen of Big Time
“One of the reasons that you laugh so hard at Judy Conner’s words about marriage and its often inevitable conclusion is because it feels so true. With good writing and with insights of someone who has tasted the bitter fruit, she makes you wince a little, nod your head in understanding and, if you are a man, squirm.” Rick Bragg, author of All Over but the Shoutin’ and Ava’s Man
“Like all good comedy, this book explains things—things you wonder about. Like why New Orleanians ignore celebrities, and how to hug a ghost. But the best part is this—despite all that bragging Ms. Conner does about her mean streak, it’s a really sweet love story.” Julie Smith, author of Mean Woman Blues and Louisiana Lamet
“I don’t know what to make of this book. It’s a shaggy dog story. It’s a cookbook. It’s a gimlet-eyed view of New Orleans’ drinking class. Which is to say that it’s a hell of a read.” John T. Edge, author of Southern Belly: The Ultimate Food Lovers Companion to the American South
“This book is more fun than a box of glue-huffing monkeys on St. Peter and Bourbon!” John Goodman
“A sassy dame who sounds tough—but at heart isn't—tells her life story. A love story that just keeps going.” Kirkus Reviews
“Cynthia Darlow's amusing twang is a perfect fit for Judy Connor's memoir about her ex-husband and their shared custody of one brown dog…Connor's portrayal of life, love, and reincarnation in humid New Orleans is given a life of its own.” AudioFile
