* Nominated for a Grammy Award for best Spoken Word Recording *
Here is a folksy and funny, endearing and affecting, southern-fried tale about two very special friendships.

In a small town near Birmingham sits the Whistle Shop Cafe, a place alive with the hungry, the heartbroken, the righteous and the garrulous.  The cafe is owned by sweet, patient Ruth, and by Idgie, irresistibly big-hearted and big-mouthed.  Their story is remembered, years later, in the Rose Terrace Nursing Home.  As elderly Cleo Threadgoode chats with her visitor - the over-stuffed, overwrought, menopausal Evelyn Couch - she casts a hypnotic narrative spell: honeysuckle vines and custard pies; births, deaths and marriages; sorrow and laughter; an occasional murder - and even the recipe for fried green tomatoes.  And as the past reaches into the present, the Whistle Sop Cafe touches the one thing missing from her existence: life.

From the Publisher:

"The people in Miss Flagg's book are as real as the people in books can
be. If you put an ear to the pages, you can almost hear the characters
speak. The writer's imaginative skill transforms simple, everyday events
into complex happenings that take on universal meanings."

--Chattanooga Times

"This whole literary enterprise shines with honesty, gallantry, and love
of perfect details that might otherwise be forgotten."

--Los Angeles Times

"A sparkling gem."

--Birmingham News

"Watch out for Fannie Flagg. When I walked into the Whistle Stop Cafe she
fractured my funny bone, drained my tear ducts, and stole my heart."

--Florence King, Author of Confessions of a Failed Southern Lady
"Admirers of the wise child in Flagg's first novel, Coming Attractions,
will find her grown-up successor, Idgie, equally appealing. The book's
best character, perhaps, is the town of Whistle Stop itself--too bad
trains don't stop there anymore."

--Publisher's Weekly

From the Back Cover:

"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

--Houston Chronicle
