Alfred Uhry's enduring story--part reminiscence, part fiction--follows Daisy Werthan and Hoke Colburn through nearly a quarter-century as they argue their way to a deep and abiding friendship during a period in the south that witnessed much upheaval and social change and progress. From 1948, when Daisy's son Boolie insists that she have a chauffeur after she demolishes "a 3-week-old Packard," to 1972, when Daisy and her chauffeur-turned-best-friend Hoke share a dear moment in a nursing home, we watch the evolution of a fascinating relationship.
