It’s Christmas Eve, 1938, and 15-year-old Cassidy Smith is very pregnant with the child of 40ish Reed Hooker. Cassidy is desperate to marry Reed, Reed is desperate to open Louisiana’s hottest new taxi-dancing emporium and neither are prepared for the arrival of Reed’s wife, Sue Jack Hooker, a dangerous beauty who has just been let out of the penitentiary. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Beth Henley spins one of her most colorful tales, as she follows a hilarious band of ne’er-do-wells trying to scratch dreams from the Louisiana mud.

My Iphone is also my work phone so...the Audio Library is available all day for easy access, bluetooh for privacy! I love the Audible App
The audio edition is always my preference because the book gives the words the audio gives the performance and it gives the listener total control as to actors physical features, the book tell us what to see.
Very enjoyable story line.
All characters are performed very well, but I have always been a Jean Smart and Jack Black fan.
Great in the car stuck in traffic audio book!
Looking for more, Audio Books at Audible are my Iphone more than music. I am hooked!
Homemaker, married to Dave Bargar, mother of 8, Christian, Seventh-day Adventist, love to read!
At first I had a hard time getting into the story. But once I accepted it for the old timey radio broadcast it was performed as, I kind of enjoyed it. After all, at $3.95, the price was right!
