Journal Entry 1 by wingmaryzeewing from Taneytown, Maryland USA on Sunday, August 19, 2012
I read this years ago and enjoyed it. I recently gave this copy to my mom to read, and she liked it too. There's also a movie, which I don't think I've ever gotten around to seeing it. However, it's been so long since I read it I've forgotten the details, but I know I liked it to want to read more of Fannie Flagg.
Picked this copy up at the Book Thing, and it's got an inscription inside the front cover to Katie, from Mom, Easter 1992.

From the cover -
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 good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder.
