Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is the now-classic novel of two women in the 1980s; of gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode telling her life story to Evelyn, who is in the sad slump of middle age. The tale she tells is also of two women--of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth--who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present--for Evelyn and for us--will never be quite the same again...

"Airplanes and television have removed the Threadgoodes from the Southern scene. Happily for us, Fannie Flagg has preserved a whole community of them in a richly comic, poignant narrative that records the exuberance of their lives, the sadness of their departure. Idgie Threadgoode is a true original: Huckleberry Finn would have tried to marry her!"
--Harper Lee, Author of To Kill a Mockingbird

"A real novel and a good one... [from] the busy brain of a born storyteller."
-- The New York Times

"It's very good, in fact, just wonderful."
-- Los Angeles Times

"Funny and macabre."
-- The Washington Post

"Courageous and wise."
-- Houston Chronicle

Book Description: Ballantine. 1 Paperback(s), 1987. soft. Book Condition: New. Folksy and endearing on the surface, Fannie Flagg's now-classic novel—the inspiration for the 1991 film Fried Green Tomatoes, whose screenplay earned Flagg an Oscar nomination—introduces us to two southern women in the 1980s: Evelyn Couch, in the sad slump of middle age, and gray-headed Ninny Threadgoode, living in the Rose Terrace Nursing Home, who tells stories of her youth to Evelyn whenever she accompanies her husband there to visit his mother. But in Ninny's tales of her tomboyish sister-in-law Idgie, who ran the Whistle Stop Café with her friend Ruth, Evelyn begins to hear that there is a different, truer way to live a life. "Airplanes and television have removed the Threadgoodes from the Southern scene. Happily for us, Fannie Flagg has preserved a whole community of them in a richly comic, poignant narrative that records the exuberance of their lives, the sadness of their departure. Idgie Threadgoode is a true original: Huckleberry Finn would have tried to marry her."—Harper Lee 403. Bookseller Inventory # 43829
