Product Details


“[A] witty multigenerational saga . . . [Fannie] Flagg’s down-home wisdom, her affable humor and her long view of life offer a pleasant respite in nerve-jangling times.”People

The Whole Town’s Talking [is] Fannie Flagg at her best.”Florida Times Union

“If there’s one thing Fannie Flagg can do better than anybody else, it’s tell a story, and she outdoes herself in The Whole Town’s Talking. . . . Another brilliant novel—equally on the level as her famous Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe.”The Newport Plain Talk

“Told with warmth, humor and remarkable characters, this touching novel is a tribute to the indomitable spirit of love.”The Columbus Dispatch

“Delightful.”—The Washington Post

“I could not put this book down and didn’t want the tale to end. Fannie Flagg does it again; a great read you won’t want to miss.”The Missourian 

“It’s a sweeping, cinematic approach. . . . Flagg’s gentle storytelling makes the novel an easy, comfortable read that will leave a reader thinking about life, love and loss”—Minneapolis Star Tribune

“[Fannie Flagg] creates a world familiar in its reality and its hopes, and she displays her storytelling skills, ones that are enhanced by her humanity, her optimism and her big heart. . . .The Whole Town’s Talking [is] a story of life’s peaks, valleys and ordinary days—and a ringing affirmation of love, community and life itself.”Richmond Times-Dispatch

The Whole Town’s Talking is warm and inviting. Flagg’s Elmwood Springs novels are comfort reads of the best kind, warm and engaging without flash or fuss.”Miami Herald

“Flagg’s humor shines through as she chronicles their successes, disappointments, and even a mysterious murder or two. . . . The interwoven lives of these completely engaging characters twist and turn in unexpected ways, making this chronicle of a close-knit community a pleasure to read.”BookPage

“[A] charming tale.”Booklist
