Description: Anyone who has read the best-selling Mama Makes Up Her Mind or listened to Bailey White's inimitable commentaries on NPR knows that she is nothing less than a national treasure. Now, in her delectable first novel, she introduces us to the peculiar yet enormously lovable people who inhabit a sleepy small town in southern Georgia. Meet serious, studious Roger, the peanut virologist who is trying to fend off the nasty little insects that threaten the town's livelihood but who has just lost his heart to a larger invader from the outside -- in the person of Della, a painter of chickens he meets at the town dump who leaves notes on the things she is throwing away ("This fan works, but makes a clicking sound and will not oscillate"). And there's Louise, who is trying to summon Martian invaders by making special arrangements of letters with the man next door who is trying to save the world's vanishing typefaces.

Tender but droll, completely hilarious, and utterly original, Quite a Year for Plums is sure to delight Bailey White's millions of fans. It will make you grin so hard your ears will hurt.
