Flamingo Funeral & Tales From the Land of Tea Cakes and Whiskey

Authored by Kat Kennedy

Southern Literature
What drives family loyalty past the point of common sense? When Uncle Gus dies suddenly under dubious circumstances, his family is left with more than just a funeral to arrange. Gus has left a secret will and a family legacy so dysfunctional that the thought of refusing his wishes, even from the grave, is not once considered.
Flamingo Funeral & Tales from the Land of Tea Cakes and Whiskey is not a book depicting the genteel South of mint juleps on the front porch and Southern Belles. This is a book of stories about the hard drinking, hard living South. It is filled with characters like the worn and weary Jolene who discovers "being crazy is the easiest job {she} ever had," and Ree Lambert whose wish to be left alone leads her to do the unthinkable.
