There's a bit of eccentricity and

craziness . . .

Bruce Collier -

 editor DeFuniak Herald 

"The Exploding Hushpuppy collection is an astutely judged blend of comedy, reminiscence, and insight. And yes, it is rather calming, the kind of calm that goes with fasting from social media, sitting on the couch and listening to Debussy - or Dolly Parton."

'Bout to be laughing out loud to Leslie Anne Tarabella's Exploding Hushpuppies, 'cause there's nobody funnier than a Southern girl!  - I chuckled so hard at your ice maker story!

"This is a perfect time for Leslie Anne's second book debut - a collection of her trademark humorous stories to take our minds off coronavirus. Touching and funny. A must-read for those folks moving to the South, bless their hearts! Show them some hospitality and tuck a copy in a gift bag with a jar of homemade jam or a bag of boiled peanuts."
