New York, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, and Tennessee these are the regions and places that provide both content and context for Fast Fat Girls in Pink Hot Pants. White's poetry takes a timely look at why tradition, race, and economics across regional lines continue to have relevance for Americans in the twenty-first century. Her narrative journey is at once personal and universal in scope and a must-read for anyone who has made that sojourn across the Mason-Dixon Line.
