“Miss Iona was walking to work” is the first line of this book, inviting the reader to step back into the early sixties as Speed, Alabama, prepares for its week of Sesquicentennial celebrations. The town characters fill with pride, vanity, ambition and lust over the baton twirling competition known as a “fancy strut.” In this early novel, Smith delights us with an ironic, authentic skewering of small town life.
