    Much of this book I found really aggravating the unthinking privilege of the Ya Yas, their total narcissism, the constant and tedious drama and yet I found myself looking forward to my lunch breaks so I could read it Despite the foreignness of the situations and location, the class and race, there was still enough of my mother and me in Vivi and Siddalee Walker to make the book resona
