Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Flagg's new novel is the Lake Wobegon of the South. It is folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, filled with humor and drama -- and has an ending that would fill with smiling tears the Whistle Stop Lake... if only they had a lake...
It's first the story 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 Cafe Wobegon offering a good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.
