About the Author

Fannie Flagg began writing and producing television specials at age

nineteen and went on to distinguish herself as an actress and a writer in

television, films, and the theater. Her first novel, Daisy Fay and The

Miracle Man, spent ten weeks on the New York Times paperback

bestseller list, and her second novel, Fried Green Tomatoes at the

Whistle Stop Cafe, was on the same list for thirty-six weeks. It was

produced by Universal Pictures as the feature film Fried Green

Tomatoes. Flagg's script was nominated for both the Writers Guild of

America and an Academy Award, and it won the highly regarded

Scripters Award. Flagg narrated both novels on audiocassette and

received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Spoken Word.

Her latest novel is titled Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! She lives

in California and Alabama.

Praise For…

"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."

--Publisher's Weekly
