Synopsis

Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is the
now-classic 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 kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter, even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present--for Evelyn and for us--will never be quite the same again...

About the Author

For anyone who is a bit older, the name Fannie Flagg is quite a familiar one. It was common to see her on various television shows in the 70's and 80's. Her crowning glory however, was her novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. What a very unique, unforgettable story line carried out by colorful characters. It was so well done that it was adapted into the 1991 motion picture, Fried Green Tomatoes. It gave her an Academy Award nomination for her screenplay adaptation.

Flagg was born, Patricia Neal, but when she was applying for membership in the Screen Actor's Guild, she found out that her name was already registered by the famous actress, Patricia Neal. Flagg was born in Birmingham, Alabama where she spent most of her growing up days. As she had the encouragement of her father, Flagg became interested in writing and performing at a young age. She wrote her first play at the age of 10. When she was a teen, she entered the Miss Alabama Pageant, and won a scholarship to a local acting school for one year. After school, Flagg began hosting a local morning show on TV in Birmingham. Then, came her move to New York, when she was denied a pay raise by the local station.

Flagg distinguished herself as an actor and writer in television, films, and theater. She wrote the NY Times bestsellers.......Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!, and Standing in the Rainbow. She was nominated for the Academy and Writer's Guild of America Awards, and won the Scripter's Award. Flagg lives in California and Alabama.
