Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe Synopsis

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.

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe Press Reviews

'A middle-aged housewife has her stagnant life reshaped by an inspiring octogenarian, who recounts the story of the women who ran the Whistle Stop Cafe in Whistle Stop, Alabama, in the 1930s. Food, friendship and murder combine to make this an entertaining and comic novel which was made into a hugely popular film by Jon Avnet in 1992, starring the late Jessica Tandy and Kathy Bates.' (Kirkus UK)
