Little Altars Everywhere offers another look into the turbulent, unconventional and often hilarious lives of the quirky Walker clan of Thornton, Louisiana. Blending postbellum electricity with an off-beat Catholic pedigree, the Walkers take turns imparting the family history, bringing a whole new meaning to the term Southern Gothic. Siddalee, the eldest daughter, is at the centre of the narrative and with her customary flair and drama she recounts the family's more outlandish exploits, often involving her mother, Vivi, one of the legendary 'Ya-Ya's' whose reckless drinking, repressed rage and exuberance for life and love left an indelible mark on the young Walker's childhoods. Little Altars Everywhere is often outrageous and wildly funny and yet beneath each comic turn lies the dark reality of life on Pecan Grove Plantation.
