I just discovered Rita Mae Brown 2 years ago and totally LOVE LOVE LOVE her funny little books. I am currently reading Pawing Through The Past. I also bought Outfoxed and read a chapter in it but havent had time to get through that one. I also just bought Dolley but havent had a chance to even upon its parcel yet either. So many books so little time. I've seen her interviewed several times and she is a hoot.
I LOVE the Sister Jane books. What could be better than an awesome murder mystery filled with wildly descriptive passages of horses, hunts, and hounds?! I also love the wisdom from the animals.
I have also listened to a few of Rita Mae's books on tape. Her voice brings the scenes to life even more than her descriptions. I listen to "The Hunt Ball" all the time. Especially the chapter where the foxes get trapped in the feed bin, run through the hounds to split the pack, which angers the cow and her calf, whom then charge at the riders. Some of the most comedic literature ever written, in my opinion.
