Comic and tragic, unique and outlandish, CRAZY IN ALABAMA is the story of two journeys -- Lucille's from Industry, Alabama, to Los Angeles, to star on THE BEVERLY HILL BILLIES and her 12-year-old nephew Peejoe's, who is about to discover two kinds of Southern justice, and what that means about the stories he's heard and the people he knows.
"If Flannery O'Connor and Stephen King had written a book together, this would be it. Hilarious and scary!" -- Fannie Flagg
"CRAZY IN ALABAMA is Mark Childress at his most outrageous, most hilarious, and most moving. Aunt Lucille takes her strange place as one of the South's most unforgettable women, and CRAZY IN ALABAMA is simply an unforgettable book!"
-- Pat Conroy
"In the grand tradition of Harper Lee and Truman Capote, Mark Childress gives us CRAZY IN ALABAMA, a wonderful tale that is both wildly hilarious and painfully frightening. Set in the mid-sixties at the height of racial tensions, Childress takes all of the classic Southern elements and puts his own magical spin on them, emerging with a cast of characters you're not likely to ever forget. CRAZY IN ALABAMA is an extraordinary accomplishment on every level, the least of which being that you will never look at a piece of Tupperware and not be reminded..."
