9780099448938: Standing In The Rainbow

The time is 1946-2000. The Place is Elmwood Springs, Missouri. World War II has ended. Neighbour Dorothy broadcasts daily from her front room - to an audience across the state - the antics of her wayward son Bobby and adolescent Anna Lee. It's hard to keep secrets in a community like theirs, but life isn't perfect, and even Neighbour Dorothy has a tragedy as well hidden as it can be.

Into their midst comes the Oatman Family, white Southern Gospel singers who arrive for a pharmaceutical convention, and blow the place away. And then there's Hamm Sparks, a super-salesman everyone likes and trusts; and Charlie Fowler, the poultry king who can see the future in a bucket-to-go; and a wealth of other unforgettable residents. Not to mention the brand new Three Little Pigs Cafeteria, with its pink neon pig casting a glow over the high street and pointing the way to the future...

Review:

"Flagg says as much about the human condition through observant comedy as others do through polemic" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Poignant and funny, this novel cuts to the heart of small-town America" ( Mail on Sunday)

"Unarguably a wonderful story-teller" ( The Times)

"[A] big, juicy middle-American apple pie of a book, sometimes tart but mostly sweet" ( Los Angeles Times)

"Good news for fans of Fried Green Tomatoes... The action does not let up for a minute" ( New York Times Book Review)

Book Description:

Another cocktail of Fannie Flagg's humour and poignancy, wit and nostalgia - a fantastic feelgood novel that takes you right to the heart of American life.
