Georgia Bottoms may be Six Points, Alabama's finest feature - beautiful, worldly, a splendid cook and faithful churchgoer who cares for her aged mother and sells handmade quilts to her grateful neighbors.

Georgia also has a discreet side business, "entertaining" six local gentlemen at night. Judge Barnett on Sunday, Sheriff Allred on Friday, the doctor on Wednesday (Monday's are Georgia's own). Each gentleman gets a night tailored to his particular tastes, each has been trained to leave a "gift" to help Georgia get by, and each one thinks he is Georgia's only secret lover.

When Preacher Eugene Hendrix (Saturdays) decides he must confess their affair in front of his wife and the entire congregation, Georgia may be able to stop him in time. But one pin pulled out of her elaborately protected life may be all it takes to send the whole structure to hell in a hurry. Chin high, posture perfect, her Chanel handbag tucked firmly under her arm, Georgia sets out to save herself, her mama, and her particular notion of virtue from total ruin. Nothing in Six Points will ever be the same.

Written with hilarity, insight, and affection for the many failings of man-and womankind,Georgia Bottomsplumbs the irrepressible workings of the rebellious human heart.
Mark Childress was born in Monroeville, Alabama. He is the author of six previous novels, includingOne MississippiandCrazy in Alabama,three books for children, and the screenplay of the film,Crazy in Alabama. He lives in Key West, Florida.

Editorial Reviews

"Georgia Bottoms is a lovingly drawn woman, charming, hilarious, heartbreaking, warm and tough, rich in charm and denial and insight. She's an inspired creation in a story filled with serious challenges and fabulous people, good and bad, rich and poor, stunning and appalling, sometimes all at once. They all ring true, and I will never forget them."-Anne Lamott, author of Imperfect Birds
