Annotation Actor and comedian Damon Wayans, best known for his crude humor on the 1990s comedy sketch show "In Living Color," unveils a surprising sentimental side with his first novel, about an irascible widow who finds a chance at redemption through her local "Red Hat Society." After years of a combative marriage, Alma finds that antagonism is her default position, which understandably alienates her children, friends, and neighbors. Her faithful husband continues to put up with her, mostly out of habit, but when one of her thoughtless comments is followed by tragedy, Alma is all alone and consumed by guilt. To her surprise, the renowned ladies with the red hats reach out to her, and try to teach her how to surrender her cynicism and learn to forgive herself.
Editors Note Unable to show her love for her long-time husband out of a lingering resentment for past mistakes, Alma realizes that her own choices have alienated her from friends and family and is taken in by a suspicious circle of red-hatted ladies that introduces her to new possibilities. A first novel by the BET Comedy Award-winning author of Bootleg. (General fiction).
