Abstract:

"A funny, warm, original memoir in which a grandmother speaks to her granddaughter from beyond the grave, telling, with candor and humor, stories from both their lives--of kinship, loyalty, tenacity, and love." --

Irrepressible, glamorous, unapologetically opinionated, Bobby Bell doted on her granddaughter. Kalb saved every voicemail her grandmother Bobby Bell ever left her. Here, Bobby is speaking to Kalb once more, in a voice as passionate as it ever was in life. The result is an examination of the special bond that can skip a generation and endure beyond death. -- adapted from jacket
