Cracker QueenThe anti-Southern belle. A strong, authentic woman with a raucous sense of humor who holds her head, and her cigarette, up high. She knows loss and hurt- these things have made her beautiful, resourceful, and, above all, real.Bad ChoicesMoreCracker QueenThe anti-Southern belle. A strong, authentic woman with a raucous sense of humor who holds her head, and her cigarette, up high. She knows loss and hurt- these things have made her beautiful, resourceful, and, above all, real.Bad Choices Make Great Stories.NPRs All Things Considered commentator Lauretta Hannon grew up in backwater Warner Robins. Her mama and daddy had a deep and disorderly love with years of booze, infidelities, and nervous breakdowns, and the stories of her deeply dysfunctional family include chain gangs, guns, ghost hunting, moonshine stands, scooterpootin, the famous Goat Man of Georgia, and Crazy Aunt Carrie, who shot her first four husbands and went after the last one with a butcher knife. The early years of hardship and hard living all gave Hannon the resilience and humor that are now the hallmarks of her Cracker Queen way of life. Full of warmth, outrageous wit, and world-class storytelling, The Cracker Queen marks the debut of a powerfully original Southern voice.
