9780143127499: Dollbaby : A Novel

When Ibby Bell's father dies the summer of 1964, her mother deposits eleven-year-old Ibby in New Orleans with her eccentric grandmother, Fannie. Her grandmother's rundown Victorian mansion is like no place Ibby's ever been, and Fannie like no one she's ever met. Luckily, Ibby falls under the care of Fannie's black cook, Queenie, and her outspoken daughter, Dollbaby, who initiate her into the ways of the South, both its grand traditions and its darkest secrets. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights movement, this is a coming-of-age story about family and truth.

Book Description Penguin Putnam Inc, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 201 x 135 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A big-hearted coming-of-age debut set in civil rights-era New Orleans a novel of Southern eccentricity and secrets When Ibby Bell s father dies unexpectedly in the summer of 1964, her mother unceremoniously deposits Ibby with her eccentric grandmother Fannie and throws in her father s urn for good measure. Fannie s New Orleans house is like no place Ibby has ever been and Fannie, who has a tendency to end up in the local asylum is like no one she has ever met. Fortunately, Fannie s black cook, Queenie, and her smart-mouthed daughter, Dollbaby, take it upon themselves to initiate Ibby into the ways of the South, both its grand traditions and its darkest secrets. For Fannie s own family history is fraught with tragedy, hidden behind the closed rooms in her ornate Uptown mansion. It will take Ibby s arrival to begin to unlock the mysteries there. And it will take Queenie and Dollbaby s hard-won wisdom to show Ibby that family can sometimes be found in the least expected places. For fans of Saving CeeCee Honeycutt and The Help, Dollbaby brings to life the charm and unrest of 1960s New Orleans through the eyes of a young girl learning to understand race for the first time. By turns uplifting and funny, poignant and full of verve, Dollbaby is a novel readers will take to their hearts. Bookseller Inventory # AAT9780143127499
