Publisher's Summary

Tattoos. Unwed pregnancy. Giving up on shaving…showering…and employment. These used to be signatures of a trashy individual. Now they’re the new norm. What happened to etiquette, hygiene, and self-restraint? Charlotte Hays, Southern gentlewoman extraordinaire, takes a humorous look at the spread of white trash culture to all levels of American society.

Interesting but a little extreme for me

I get her point, and mostly agree. However she is someone who beats a dead horse. Her social commentary does bordered on extreme judgment, but that is sort of the point of the book. I think she has a good overall theme, but some of the details are a bit much. After all a true lady is also always gracious.
