About the Author

Bailey White lives in south Georgia. She is the author of the national best-sellers Mama Makes Up Her Mind and Sleeping at the Starlite Motel. She is also a regular commentator on National Public Radio's All Things Considered.


Since White is a beloved National Public Radio commentator and author of the best-selling Mama Makes Up Her Mind, it is hardly surprising that this first novel is getting the red-carpet treatment: not only is this a Literary GuildR selection, but there's a multimedia advertising campaign, an 18-city author tour, a national bookseller contest, and a 150,000-copy first printing. Oh yes, the plot. White takes us to a little Southern town where Roger tries to save peanuts from pests while falling in love with the mysterious Della, a painter of chickens.

"White will transport readers to that place where the language is languid, the bees hum . . . and everybody-- in a nice kind of way--is a little off-kilter." --San Francisco Chronicle

"An enchanting work, as delicately stitched as a spider web." --The Philadelphia Inquirer "A novel of many perspectives. . . . On one level, Quite a Year for Plums is about chickens and peanut cultivars and pine- straw fires; on another, it's about art and impermanence and freedom." --The New York Times Book Review "Deliciously funny. . . . As tasty as a 12-egg poundcake, pungent as tea olive and crafty as a crow." --Atlanta Journal-Constitution
