From the back cover:

Jody Dyer slaps humor on everyday life as skillfully as a veteran line cook throws country ham on a flat top grill. Readers compare her to Fannie Flagg and Lewis Grizzard, but Dyer has a unique, modern, edgy voice with Appalachian roots and universal appeal.

​In Theories: Size 12, Go On, Get Mad, But You Know You Agree, readers gain a new perspective on marching bands, zoos, sports parents, teachers, outdoor weddings, tailgates, bicycle guys, and much, much more.

​Dyer says what we're all thinking but afraid to say, and she does so with a rare combination of fearless wit and literary finesse—a combination as lip-smacking good as pinto beans and cornbread.
