In these dazzling stories, acclaimed author Lee Smith wants you to meet: Mrs. Joline B. Newhouse, who writes a "fortnightly" newspaper column called "Between the Lines."
Georgia Rose, the girl whose life is more like a soap opera than the TV serial she's addicted to.
Martha Rasnick, the young housewife in "Dear Phil Donahue" who writes all her troubles to the TV personality.
Florrie, the cake lady in "Cakewalk" who causes her prissy sister no end of embarrassment by "wearing running shoes, at her age, and wooly white athletic socks that fall in crinkles down around her ankles."
