The Tea-olive Bird Watching Society

The Tea-olive Bird Watching Society

(2005)
A novel by

 
The women of a small town's bird watching society secretly plan to "eliminate" the husband of one of their members in this new novel - a modern spin on the classic film Arsenic and Old Lace - written by the beloved author of Sophie and the Rising Sun. In a story replete with coconut cake, grits, and poisoned turtle stew, it's easy to see why Augusta Trobaugh has been heralded as having "a voice from and for the South, as complex and resonant as the region itself"(Anne Rivers Siddons). With her latest novel, Trobaugh displays that distinctly Southern charm and beckons new readers to her work. Founding members of the Tea-Olive Bird Watching Society in tiny Tea-Olive, Georgia, are Beulah, Sweet, Wildwood, and Zion, each named after a hymn. Pillars of the community, seemingly beyond reproach, two of these ladies are nonetheless conspiring to murder retired Judge L. Hyson Breed, a newcomer to Tea-Olive. It all begins when the judge tricks Sweet into marriage, steals her land for a development project, and sweet- talks his way right onto the town council. By the time Beulah and Zion discover his evil plans - and realize that Sweet has endured personal harm, with more to come - the judge is already a permanent fixture in town. Or is he? When Beulah and Zion attempt to do away with the judge - while always remaining unfailingly polite - the novel takes a wild turn. The result is a delightful black comedy from a novelist at the peak of her powers.
