There's a reason this memoir of a 100-year-old woman's sun-soaked rural childhood is not at all what it seems. In Bruno Maddox's warmhearted comic novel it is soon revealed why a young man who knows very little about history and even less about being a woman attempts to improvise an old woman's autobiography in a single frantic night, and why he fails. A love story, a murder mystery, an acclaimed satire, "My Little Blue Dress" is a hugely entertaining and hilariously audacious fiction debut, "a winsome and vastly entertaining novel" ("The New York Times Book Review") by a marvelous new literary talent.
"In his first novel, Maddox concocts a hilariously off-the-wall satire of the memoir. . . . Brilliantly funny . . . Maddox's writing is purposely uppity, but the kitschy, honest overtones communicate a very witty take on love and life." ("Publishers Weekly")
"Hilarious . . . fun, full-throttle stuff." ("Entertainment Weekly")
