I really enjoyed this little book. It is a compilation of essays the writer has written in an Eastern KY newspaper, and covers not only politics, but wonderful accounts of town characters and old customs. Much of it is written in the dialect of that area of KY. A well-written book by a female KY author,

I found parts of it to be good and some not so good. It was worth my time to read it.

Ann Shelby delivers some zingers. For anyone born and bred in Appalachia, she touches the heart and soul.

Anne Shelby, whose book has a foreword by Gurney Norman, is from Eastern Kentucky, and she has published many books of poems and books for children. She has also written for THE LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER as well as for smaller local newspapers. The crisp, funny pieces in Can A Democrat Get Into Heaven cover politics, religion and, as she says in her subtitle, "Other Things You Ain't Supposed to Talk About." Some of the pieces almost read like short stories, such as one called "my pinion bout the lection," which ends "they will vote how they are told to vote not me tho I am sticking to my beliefs I will haf to git payed."

A number of the pieces challenge anti-woman preachers using Shelby's r own deep knowledge of the Christian Bible, but other pieces are riffs on dogs and houses and memory. One of my favorites is about accents, called "Quit Makin' Fun of the Way I Talk." She says, "Once somebody comments on your Kentucky accent, it's usually not long till they're inquiring whether you own a pair of shoes or have sex with close family members. One man in Ohio asked me if I ate possum much. I about choked on my pasta salad."

The author has a wonderful way of saying all she has to say, and it's a lot --- questioning and finding humor and depth, in everything from how come dogs seem to find a way to her farm, to how come a Democrat has such a hard way to go in the mountains of Kentucky. Her voice is familiar and lilting, and hilarious. She talks about everything from fiddle tunes to the ten commandments -- and when she tells it, it's like, YEAH, that's RIGHT! Women, Democrats, Baptists, mountain people, all will be enthralled, but this is not only a book for us, Eastern Kentuckians, it's a book for today's times. Anne's a Thoreau with a sense of humor, and this book is a must for anyone that loves a 'smart remark' and appreciates a well-said statement! The pieces fit together like a glove, though varied and dimensional. A neat book. I love it!

This book is so on target! The author intelligently examines the issues of the day (any day ... yesterday, today, tomorrow) with a strength and a glorious sense of humor that provides hope in these politically corrupt times. Whether she's talking about current affairs, spirituality, or the ways things used to be, she's talking directly to you in such a candid way, often such a funny way, that you find yourself laughing out loud or humming in agreement, knowing that with this kind of human spirit still working among us, we'll probably be all right after all. If you miss this one, you'll be sorry and won't even know it. READ THIS BOOK! No kidding. Read it.

Wonderful, modern-day KY folk stories that often make you laugh out loud. The perfect book for all the "women-libers" in KY and the guys that adore them. The longest story is 4 1/2 pages, so it is easy to pick up for quick entertainment.
