The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt follows a Southern woman as she untangles the dark legacy of her family's possessions in a South Carolina cotton town. It is a novel steeped in Southern lyricism, tragic family secrets, and suspenseful storytelling.
“Andrea Bobotis is a new, original voice as Southern as they come! In The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt, she unravels a complicated web of dirty Southern secrets. Using masterful writing and a perfectly calculated reveal of damaged history, she ends up weaving a tapestry that is so much more.” —Leah Weiss, author of If the Creek Don’t Rise
“South Carolina native Bobotis's debut is sure to place her alongside established authors such as Fannie Flagg. Rich in detail, it will carry readers between past and present, presenting historical issues of race, class, and belonging. A mystery entangled in family secrets and racial tension, this tale will be enjoyed by fans of Southern fiction.” — Library Journal
