Briscoe Chambers is not only the manager of her country music star husband, but a graduate student trying to complete her Virginia Woolf thesis by fall – the same time her cheating husband, Michael, has an album due to avoid being in breach of contract. No problem, right?

Except his co-writer will be Velvet Wickens, his idol who has been opening shows for him. And who happens to be the one he’s cheating with. Now Briscoe has been asked by their record label to ensure the album gets finished on time. To accomplish this, they must all live together for the duration of the writing of the album.

And by the way, Briscoe knows.

Fans of the writing of both Taylor Jenkins Reid and Virginia Woolf will enjoy this novel that has plenty of sweet tea, country music, Virginia Woolf, and heartache.


Praise:

Southern-Fried Woolf is an uproariously funny, deeply insightful, and engagingly complex novel on many levels.” – Rick Neumayer, author of Journeyman and Hotwalker

“A celebration of how books and music can help one transcend life’s daily trials, Southern-Fried Woolf is a quick-witted and erudite novel, drenched in a love of literature and music.” Self-Publishing Review

“Drema Drudge has taken a typical novel outline and made it into an even more exciting and unique story. From Briscoe’s thesis being woven into each chapter to being a part of every thought and emotion she has, the story captivates the audience from start to finish.”- Literary Titans

“Drudge pitches us into Nashville’s vivid world, full of fascinating characters and expertly depicted settings. You can almost taste the sweet barbecue beans and hunks of honeyed cornbread.”- Maggie Humm, author of prize-winning novels Talland House and Radical Woman: Gwen John & Rodin

“A cleverly plotted, character-led novel combining country music and Virginia Woolf. Now there´s a mix!”- A ‘Wishing Shelf’ Book Review
