About the Book and Author
Helen Ellis, the New York Times bestselling author of American Housewife and Eating the Cheshire Cat, is back with a fiercely funny collection of essays on marriage and manners, thank you notes and three ways, ghosts, gunshots, gynecology, and the Calgon-scented, onion-dipped, monogrammed art of living as a Southern Lady. In Southern Lady Code, Ellis transforms herself into a dominatrix Donna Reed to save her marriage, inadvertently steals a $795 Burberry trench coat, witnesses a man fake his own death at a party, avoids a neck lift, and finds a black tie gown that gives her the confidence of a drag queen. Ellis is a poker player who competes on the national tournament circuit. Raised in Alabama, she lives with her husband in New York City.
