Praise

"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."
