Book Review

American Thighs
The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Preserving Your Assets
Jill Conner Browne

Jill Conner Browne is THE Sweet Potato Queen. She is the founder of The Sweet Potato Queen 'organization. (Read about TSPQ here: ) It's sort of like the Red Hat Society only...only...only a whole lot more gaudy. (And I've seen quite a few gaudy Red Hat ladies... ;o)

Browne is a humorist...with a somewhat warped and one-side sense of humor. In this, her eighth book, she gives advice on - among other things - growing older. While I find Browne hilariously laugh-out-loud funny, you need to be aware that she has peppered what I term foul language throughout her book. (You'll get the idea when you read her list of titles below.)

If you read this, but get fed up with the first couple of chapters, turn to the last two chapters. They are the reward for reading the entire book and, to me, the best part of the book.

Other books include:

The Sweet Potato Queens' Book of Love

God Save the Sweet Potato Queens

The Sweet Potato Queens' Big-A** Cookbook (and Financial Planner)

The Sweet Potato Queens' Field Guide to Men: Every Man I Love Is Either Married, Gay, or Dead

The Sweet Potato Queens' Wedding Planner/Divorce Guide

The Sweet Potato Queens' First Big-A** Novel: Stuff We Didn't Actually Do but Could Have, and May Yet (with Karin Gillespie)

The Sweet Potato Queens' Guide to Raising Children For Fun and Profit

The Daingerfield Public Library may not have all titles.
