Such a fabulous book and brilliantly read by the author. I’m sure most people have seen the film starring Kathy Bates, but the book is far better. It’s funny, heartwarming and poignant. Have a listen and try not to cry, you won’t be able to stop yourself.

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg

FRIED GREEN TOMATOES AT THE WHISTLE STOP CAFÉ is 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 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 quite be the same.


‘A richly poignant narrative’ Harper Lee
