Description
"Known to millions as Julia Sugarbaker of Designing Women, Dixie Carter is one of Hollywood's best-known and best-loved Southern ladies. With her first book, she emerges as a fresh new literary presence. Trying to Get to Heaven is a personal report on the possibility of happiness and an ode to beauty (inside and out), family, and the spirit. Seasoned with Dixie's memories of growing up in Tennessee, her adventures in show business, and her philosophy of kindness and grace, and introducing a voice that is funny, warm, and self-deprecating, this is one conversation that you never want to end. From the inside scoop on plastic surgery to the warmth of the home, from the importance of etiquette and grooming to the transforming power of yoga, from the value of the family to the courage to be yourself, Dixie Carter has an opinion on just about everything."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
