Descripción Ballantine. 1 Paperback(s), 2004. soft. Estado de conservación: New. Following up Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! and Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café, Fannie Flagg here takes us back to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, in the 1940s, where daily radio broadcasts from Neighbor Dorothy, the lady with the smile in her voice, keep us delightfully informed on all the local news. We also meet Bobby, her 10-year-old son, a Cub Scout destined to live a thousand lives in his imagination, and Beatrice Woods, the Little Blind Songbird, as well as the fabulous Minnie Oatman, lead vocalist (baritone) of the Oatman Family Gospel Singers. In the robust company of these characters and many more, Flagg takes through the remaining half of the 20th century, right up to the turn of the new millennium."What is so appealing about Elmwood Springs? It's Fannie Flagg's unswerving devotion to folksy, sly humor and her uncanny ability to make a small town a big character in her sweetly engaging fourth novel. Flagg ushers you into the residents' hearts and minds with a flourish. She sits you right down in Neighbor Dorothy's home during her radio broadcast, hands you a plate of homemade cookies, and assures you that putting up your feet and staying a bit is the right thing to do."—Miami Herald"A sprawling, feel-good novel with an old-fashioned beginning, middle and end. The predominant setting is tiny Elmwood Springs, Mo., and the protagonist is 10-year-old Bobby Smith, an earnest Cub Scout also capable of sneaking earthworms into his big sister's bed. His father is the town pharmacist and his mother is local radio personality Neighbor Dorothy (whom readers will recognize from Flagg's Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!). In 1946, Harry Truman presides over a victorious nation anticipating a happy and prosperous future. During the next several decades, the plot expands to include numerous beguiling characters who interact with the Smith family among them, the Oatman Family Southern Gospel Singers, led by matriarch Minnie, who survive misadventures galore to find fame after an appearance on the Arthur Godfrey show in 1949, the same year Bobby's self-esteem soars when he wins the annual town bubble gum contest. Also on hand are tractor salesman Ham Sparks, who becomes amazingly successful in politics, despite his marriage to overwhelmingly shy Betty Raye Oatman, and well-liked mortician Cecil Figgs, a sponsor of Neighbor Dorothy, who, as a bachelor in the mid-century South, also enjoys a secret life. The effects of changing social mores are handled deftly; historical events as they impact little Elmwood Springs are duly noted, and everything is infused with the good humor and joie de vivre that are Flagg's stock-in-trade."—Publishers Weekly (starred review) 551.

Descripción Random House USA Inc, United States, 2004. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Reprint. 201 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Good news! Fannie s back in town--and the town is among the leading characters in her new novel. Along with Neighbor Dorothy, the lady with the smile in her voice, whose daily radio broadcasts keep us delightfully informed on all the local news, we also meet Bobby, her ten-year-old son, destined to live a thousand lives, most of them in his imagination; Norma and Macky Warren and their ninety-eight-year-old Aunt Elner; the oddly sexy and charismatic Hamm Sparks, who starts off in life as a tractor salesman and ends up selling himself to the whole state and almost the entire country; and the two women who love him as differently as night and day. Then there is Tot Whooten, the beautician whose luck is as bad as her hairdressing skills; Beatrice Woods, the Little Blind Songbird; Cecil Figgs, the Funeral King; and the fabulous Minnie Oatman, lead vocalist of the Oatman Family Gospel Singers. The time is 1946 until the present. The town is Elmwood Springs, Missouri, right in the middle of the country, in the midst of the mostly joyous transition from war to peace, aiming toward a dizzyingly bright future. Once again, Fannie Flagg gives us a story of richly human characters, the saving graces of the once-maligned middle classes and small-town life, and the daily contest between laughter and tears. Fannie truly writes from the heartland, and her storytelling is, to quote Time, utterly irresistible. From the Hardcover edition. Nº de ref. de la librería AAS9780345452887
