You don’t have to be a God-fearing southerner to relate to these true tales

You don’t have to be a God-fearing southerner to relate to these true tales.

Though many are sultry, as the title conveys, the real stories are not about southern sex and scandal. The authors write about friendship and love, betrayal and abandonment, using and being used. They touch on mental illness and substance abuse, sexual uncertainty and sexual dysfunction, marital uncertainty and marital dysfunction. [...] This book is not about tarts from the Deep South, as the title, and the short skirt and red-stiletto-clad legs on the cover, imply. Even the sultrier of the stories are told with tact. Beneath the “sinful” surface, the authors write about struggle and strength and survival. And that’s something we can all relate to, whether from the north or south, from a red state or blue, a believer or non.
