About This Book
Wells is a Louisiana-born Seattle actress and playwright; her loopy saga of a
40-year-old player in Seattle's hot theater scene who must come to terms with
her mama's past in steamy Thornton City, Louisiana, reads like a lengthy episode
of Designing Women written under the influence of mint juleps and Faulkner's
Absalom, Absalom!. The Ya-Yas are the wild circle of girls who swirl around the
narrator Siddalee's mama, Vivi, whose vivid voice is "part Scarlett, part
Katharine Hepburn, part Tallulah." The Ya-Yas broke the no-booze rule at the
cotillion, skinny-dipped their way to jail in the town water tower, disrupted
the Shirley Temple look-alike contest, and bonded for life because, as one says,
"It's so much fun being a bad girl!"
Siddalee must repair her busted relationship with Vivi by reading a half-century's worth of letters and clippings contained in the Ya-Ya Sisterhood's packet of "Divine Secrets." It's a contrived premise, but the secrets are really fun to learn.
