From Publishers Weekly Cleo Threadgood, 86, shares a lifetime of memories of Whistle Stop, Ala.where the social scene centered on its one cafewith Evelyn Couch, a younger woman who is looking for meaning in her life. PW described this as "lively readingthe kind that eventually nourishes Evelyn and the reader as well." Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. Review "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 Trade Paperback edition.
