Being Dead is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect FuneralBeing Dead is No Excuse: The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral by Charlotte Hays

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


While the title purports the book to be a guide for Southern Ladies, it is focused on the traditions of The Delta in general and Greeneville in particular. Those with cholesterol issues are warned to stay away from this book, as it is half cookbook, and the funeral foods of the Delta are quite honestly comfort foods that are likely to cause another funeral. The other half of the book is gossipy comedic tales of Life In The South, which is a genre you either lived through or makes you feel better about your own kinfolk.
