Crazy in Alabama, Mark Childress, 383 pages. While this is the best Childress novel I’ve read thus far, I still would recommend starting with V for Victor, which builds more evenly and conveys an almost nostalgic mood, despite its subject matter of World War II and Nazi infiltration.

Crazy in Alabama, Mark Childress, 383 pages. But. Crazy is grand Childress. At first, I thought the two storylines in this novel entirely too disparate to work : a mostly comic tale of a thirty-something woman who murders her husband and trots off to Hollywood Crazy in Alabama, Mark Childress, 383 pages.

Mark Childress (born 1957, Monroeville, Alabama) is an American novelist and Southern writer. Childress grew up in Ohio, Indiana, Mississippi, and Louisiana. He graduated from the University of Alabama, where he was a member of the Mallet Assembly. He was formerly a resident of Dallas and New York, and lives in Key West, Florida as of 2011. The book alternated between what was going on with PeeJoe in Alabama and Lucille on her journey to California. When Lucille drops her children off with her mother, the elderly woman cannot continue to care for her two orphaned grandsons while trying to deal with the trauma Lucille's six children are enduring. An uncle who is an undertaker picks up the boys and takes them to live with him temporarily.

UML @ Classroom: An Introduction to Object-Oriented Modeling (Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science). This book is great for anyone needing a solid introduction to UML or basic software engineering principles. It is also short, which is a relief to anyone used to trudging through most technical tomes. Most people could easily get through this book in a weekend, and confidently put "familiar with UML" on their resume. My only complaint with this book is that some parts of the notation are discussed without providing much of a hint on exactly where on a diagram you would place it.

Mark Childress is the author of seven novels: GEORGIA BOTTOMS (Little, Brown, 2011), ONE MISSISSIPPI, GONE FOR GOOD, CRAZY IN ALABAMA, TENDER, V FOR VICTOR, and A WORLD MADE OF FIRE. Born in Monroeville, Alabama - the same town Harper Lee wrote about in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD - Childress is one of three sons of Roy and Mary Helen Childress.

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.

And thats what I found in Learning UML from O'Reilly.

Georgia Bottoms is known in her small community of Six Points, Alabama, as a beautiful, well-to-do, and devoutly Baptist Southern belle. Nobody realizes that the family fortune has long since disappeared, and a determinedly single woman like Georgia needs an alternative, and discreet, means of income. This exuberantly acclaimed novel by the author of the bestselling Crazy in Alabama tells an uproarious and moving story about family, best friends, first love, and surviving the scariest years of your life. You need only one best friend, Daniel Musgrove figures, to make it through high school alive.

I am a real sucker for uniqueness in a book, and this one has it! There are two stories being told in parallel. Every other chapter tells one story, and vice versa. One story is a dark, sad story of a young boy staying with his uncle, an undertaker, as they experience a tremendous problem in their town with racism and violence. The other story is about his aunt who has taken off cross-country with her husband's head in a lettuce keeper and a hat box in order to appear in the Beverly Hillbillies tv show. I laughed until it hurt, and I cried hard. An amazing book with a story to tell of the place of women and blacks in the southern US in the 1960's. Truly one of my all time favorite books.

This book was highlighted recently in Bookmarks magazine and so we chose to read it for book club. It wasn't my pick, and to be honest I wasn't psyched about reading it. None of us had ever read anything by Childress, and none of us had seen the movie either.

However, can I say how wrong my gut was about this book?! This was one of the best books I've read in months, and I read a lot. (aka- no life for me....) Childress has that rare ability to bring characters to life. He expertly knows every facet of a wide array of characters. Yet, I felt each was very diverse in their own way.

Meanwhile he knows how to really move a story along. The story is told from multiple perspectives, and ranges from shocking, to sad, to funny, and it was a major page turner. I think it's hard to do what Childress has done here. He tells a powerful and unforgettable story- dealing with some major issues in a light hearted way, exposing you to the compromises that people make sometimes in order to save themselves and their families, or just to take in someone as family. Told in a true Southern voice this book with leave you wanting more.

I am looking forward to reading more Childress. Just love love loved this book!

I love Mercedes
Very odd storyline.

...but there's a solid message buried not too deeply in this book. In part it's another southern coming-of-age tale, but it's somehow greater than the sum of its parts. Terrific story telling and utterly outrageous scenes. The thought that even a little bit of this is probably based on something that really happened is too delicious to contemplate.
Read it and laugh - and then think about it a little more seriously.

My all time favorite book. Someone gave it to me and I continue to give it to others.

Most injoyable. Good characterization.

I don't think this is great or particularly deep literature, but the telling has a decent storyline and is clever in execution. I might read it a second time, but don't feel any hurry about that. The handling of both race and sex in the story was OK.

Have read a few times and just laughed as much as I got sad from it.
