Interview: Sandra Brown, author of Fat Tuesday

Jun 1, 1997


When we caught up with Sandra Brown, she was just coming off of a long morning of telephone interviews. Still, despite the poking and prodding of nosy journalists, Sandra was a delight. Southern women do have a certain special charm --- and Brown embodies it. Stories about flashers at a recent trip to Mardi Gras and her 2,000-pound "pet" steers sound so much better in her mellifluous, Texan voice. So as you read, imagine warmth coming across in every word.
