The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt adeptly catalogs loss, hope, and redemption.” —Booklist

“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

“This is a masterful spin on a Golden Age cozy plot line updated and with excellent characters and a beautifully crafted Southern setting. Bobotis is definitely a writer to watch.” —Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail

“I believe this is a breakthrough debut novel for American author, Andrea Bobotis—a book that stands side by side with titles by Fannie Flagg of Fried Green Tomatoes fame and even Eudora Welty with her stories of relationships between community and families.” —Pat Sainz, Missourian

“Andrea Bobotis has written an amazing novel, one which interrogates, with such controlled and beautiful writing, what it means to be Southern. Utilizing a unique form and a carefully-crafted mystery, Bobotis is a writer capable of deep truths, and this novel announces her as a major voice.” —Kevin Wilson, author The Family Fang and Nothing to See Here

“As the keeper of the family treasures and the family secrets, Miss Judith Kratt is a Southern eccentric in the tradition of Faulkner’s Miss Emily. But Miss Judith does not wallow in the past or embrace the dead. Instead, she works to protect the living. The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt is a universal and timely story that exposes the dangers of nostalgia and the value of assessing both things and people in a clear-eyed, honest way. It’s a thoroughly captivating story and it’s beautifully told.” —Tiffany Quay Tyson, author of Three Rivers and The Past is Never

“The droll voice of Andrea Bobotis’s heroine, Judith Kratt, might charm you—but don’t be fooled into thinking this is simply one woman’s trip down memory lane. The Last List of Miss Judith Kratt is a multilayered story about family, race, loss, and loyalty, featuring a complex cast of characters led by a woman who learns it’s never too late for growth and change.” —Cynthia Swanson, New York Times bestselling author of The Bookseller and The Glass Forest

“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

“Capturing the unique, singular voice of a once-genteel South that hid its deadly secrets and brutal crimes behind facades of grand houses, Andrea Bobotis gently leads you down a garden path of one family's shameful story only to leave you gasping at its devastating, inevitable destination. If William Faulkner were still alive, I'm pretty sure he'd wish he had written this book.” —Emily Carpenter, author of Burying the Honeysuckle Girls and Every Single Secret  

“Told in Judith's delicately snarky voice, the atmospheric narrative will keep you in both tears and stitches.” —Jaclyn Fulwood, Shelf Awareness
