When I shall wear purple With a red hat which doesnt go and doesn"t suit me Haywood has revisited the "big small town" of her youth in this coming-of-middle-age tribute to the "Jilted Generation" - women who, like her, have emerged victorious through divorce, terrible teens, menopause, the Internet, tennis elbow, spreading waistlines, nothing but tacky clothes in the stores, and countless other modern tribulations. Meet Georgia, SuSu, Teeny, Diane, and Linda - five women whove been best friends through thirty years since high school. Whenever they get the chance, they don their red hats and purple outfits for a delicious monthly serving of racy jokes, iced tea and chicken salad, baskets of sweet rolls, the latest Buckhead gossip, and - most of all - lively support and caring through the ups and downs of their lives. When Diane discovers her banker husband has a condo (with mistress) that he bought with their retirement funds, the Red Hats swing into action and plot to hang him with his own rope in a story that serves up laughter, friendship, revenge, high school memories, long-lost loves, a suburban dominatrix, and plenty of white wine and junk food.
