Ask the Fruitcake Lady - Everything You Would Already Know If You Had Any Sense
by Marie Rudisill
ISBN 1-4013-0317-X
Published November 2006 - Hardcover - 100 pages - $14.95

Truman Capote's aunt, no less, is the Fruitcake Lady.  The one who convinced Jay Leno that fruitcake wasn't bad.  This funny lady has advice on children, your body, love, home, behavior, sex, and faith.  She answers questions in this book, hence the title, such as: "Should I pay extra for soft bathroom tissue, or save money on the rough stuff?"  Her answer: "Your ass won't know the difference."  She's feisty and forthright and doesn't mince her words.  A woman after my own heart.  This is a quick read that will have you chuckling away, shaking your head in agreement, and feeling amazed at the incredulous questions, and people in general.  I agree, there are many stupid people in the world and I wonder how they get through life.
Conclusion - Laugh out loud funny.  Read it.
