Hell's Belles: A Tribute to the Spitfires, Bad Seeds & Steel Magnolias of the New and Old South
Bad seeds, belles-lettres, rule breakers, shreiking violets, bar belles- how could any collections of impudent sketches that celebrates and lampoons the American Southern bell go wrong? Most of the women on these pages are instantly recognizable. Among those whose exploits or imagination vaulted them to fame are writers Carson McCullers and Anne Rice; emancipator Harriet Tubman; actress and one-time town owner Kim Basinger; ex-black Panther Angela Davis; 30's outlaw Bonnie Parker; and mascara maven Tammy Faye Baker. A few little-knowns and relative newcomers have elbowed their way on stage, too.

This is a very accurate and chilling book. I can tell you it is true because the bad seed Pearl Choate who has her own story in this book was my great aunt.I was told the same story by my wonderful and gentle Grandmother as I was growing up and the story was true as the day is long. To the author,a job well done, a book much enjoyed.
