Description
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
