Fannie Flagg - The ​All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion
The ​one and only Fannie Flagg, beloved author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven, and I Still Dream About You, is at her hilarious and superb best in this new comic mystery novel about two women who are forced to reimagine who they are. Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother’s past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future. Sookie begins a search for answers that takes her to California, the Midwest, and back in time, to the 1940s, when an irrepressible woman named Fritzi takes on the job of running her family’s filling station. Soon truck drivers are changing their routes to fill up at the All-Girl Filling Station. Then, Fritzi sees an opportunity for an even more groundbreaking adventure. As Sookie learns about the adventures of the girls at the All-Girl Filling Station, she finds herself with new inspiration for her own life. Fabulous, fun-filled, spanning decades and generations, and centered on a little-known aspect of America’s twentieth-century story, The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion is another irresistible novel by the remarkable Fannie Flagg.

Fannie Flagg - Daisy ​Fay and the Miracle Man
In ​Fannie Flagg’s high-spirited first novel, we meet Daisy Fay Harper in the spring of 1952, where she’s “not doing much except sitting around waiting for the sixth grade.” When she leaves Shell Beach, Mississippi, in September 1959, she is packed up and ready for the Miss America Pageant, vowing “I won’t come back until I’m somebody.” But in our hearts she already is. Sassy and irreverent from the get-go, Daisy Fay takes us on a rollicking journey through her formative years on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi. There, at The End of the Road of the South, the family malt shop freezer holds unspeakable things, society maven Mrs. Dot hosts Junior Debutante meetings and shares inspired thoughts for the week (such as “sincerity is as valuable as radium”), and Daisy Fay’s Daddy hatches a quick-cash scheme that involves resurrecting his daughter from the dead in a carefully orchestrated miracle. Along the way, Daisy Fay does a lot of growing up, emerging as one of the most hilarious, appealing, and prized characters in modern fiction.

Fannie Flagg - Nous ​irons tous au paradis

Revenue inopinément d'entre les morts, à la grande surprise des médecins et de sa famille, elle rapporte en effet des souvenirs de son bref passage dans l'au-delà. Ceux-ci vont bouleverser l'existence de cette petite ville jusqu'ici bien tranquille. On retrouve dans Nous irons tous au paradis tout le charme de Beignets de tomates vertes : humour, émotion, des personnages plus attachants les uns que les autres et, à travers les petites contrariétés de la vie, un appel au bonheur qui résonnera longtemps après avoir refermé ce livre.

Fannie Flagg - Fried ​Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
Folksy ​and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is the now-classic novel 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 be quite the same again...

Fannie Flagg - Standing ​in the Rainbow
Along ​with Neighbor Dorothy, the lady with the smile in her voice, whose daily radio broadcasts keep us delightfully informed on all the local news, we also meet Bobby, her ten-year-old son, destined to live a thousand lives, most of them in his imagination; Norma and Macky Warren and their ninety-eight-year-old Aunt Elner; the oddly sexy and charismatic Hamm Sparks and the two women who love him as differently as night and day. Then there is Tot Whooten; Beatrice Woods, the Little Blind Songbird; Cecil Figgs, the Funeral King; and the fabulous Minnie Oatman. The time is 1946 until the present. The town is Elmwood Springs, Missouri, right in the middle of the country, in the midst of the mostly joyous transition from war to peace, aiming toward a dizzyingly bright future.

Fannie Flagg - A ​Redbird Christmas
A ​short and poignant Christmas story for all the family. Oswald T. Campbell, aged 52, down-and-out in a Chicago winter, is only given months to live unless he moves South. He finds himself in the small town of Lost River, Alabama, amongst all its eccentric but friendly residents.

Fannie Flagg - Grüne ​Tomaten
Dies ​ist die Geschichte von Ruth Jamison und Idgie Threadgoode und ihrem Café in Whistle Stop, Alabama. Hier braucht niemand zu bezahlen, die Schwarzen werden trotz des KuKluxKlans bedient, und wenn es sein muß, halten die Menschen zusammen wie Pech und Schwefel. Ninnie Threadgoode erzählt ihre Erinnerungen an diese wunderbare Zeit der dicken, unscheinbaren Evelyn. Allmählich entwickelt sich eine Freundschaft zwischen den beiden Frauen, die Evelyn neuen Lebensmut gibt. Was Ninnie sie lehrt ist, daß Wärme und Humor reicher machen als alles Geld der Welt.

Fannie Flagg - The ​Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop
The ​beloved author returns to the small town at the heart of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe with a heartwarming novel about secrets of youth rediscovered, hometown memories, and everyday magic. Bud Threadgoode grew up in the bustling little railroad town of Whistle Stop, Alabama, with his mother Ruth, church-going and proper, and his Aunt Idgie, the fun-loving hell-raiser. Together they ran the town's popular Whistle Stop Cafe, known far and wide for its friendly, fun, and famous "Fried Green Tomatoes." And as Bud often said to his daughter Ruthie, of his childhood, "How lucky can you get?" But sadly, as the railroad yards shut down and the town became a ghost town, nothing was left but boarded-up buildings and memories of a happier time. Then one day, Bud decides to take one last trip, just to see where his beloved Whistle Stop used to be. In so doing, he discovers new friends, new surprises about Idgie's life, and about Ninny Threadgoode, Evelyn Couch, other beloved Flagg characters, and also about the town itself. He also sets off a series of events, both touching and inspiring, which change his life and the lives of his daughter and many others. Could these events all be just coincidences? Or something else? And can you go home again?

Fannie Flagg - Isten ​hozott, Prücsök!
Fannie ​Flagg, a Sült zöld paradicsom írónőjének új regénye a kisvárosi Amerika családias és zárt közegéből a New York-i médiacirkusz kellős közepébe ugrik. A fiatal tévériporter, Dena ígéretes jövő elé néz, érzelmi élete azonban romokban hever, múltja titkokat rejt, melyekkel szembe kell néznie, hogy a szerelem újra megtalálja. Mint minden valamirevaló New York-i, ő is pszichológushoz fordul, aki halálosan beleszeret, átminősítve ezzel a „terápia” fogalmát… A komikus rádiósztártól, Dorothy asszonytól (aki saját nappalijából látja el háztartási tanácsokkal és jó hírekkel az egész Közép-Nyugatot) Ira Wallace-ig, a New York-i tévétársaság velejéig romlott elnökéig, szinte mindenki megfordul a regényben, aki számít, vagy aki „számítani szeretne”. Fannie Flagg a New York Times sikerszerzője, tehetséges színésznő és forgatókönyvíró, akinek romantikus, kifejezetten női olvasóknak szánt regényeiből felejthetetlen mozifilmeket is forgatnak. Az immár örök klasszikus Sült zöld paradicsom szerzőjének új regénye is méltán kerül a kedvenc könyveink polcára, ahová kiadónk minden évre ígér egy-egy újabb, humorral és szeretettel teli Fannie Flagg-bestsellert. „Csodás mesélő” The New York Times „Letehetetlen” Time

Fannie Flagg - Sült ​zöld paradicsom
Evelyn ​és Mrs. Cleo az idősek otthonában találkoznak. A nyolcvanhat éves Cleot nem hagyta el életkedve, és miközben kalandos sorsának történetét meséli Evelynnek - aki középkorú nőként éppen szétesni látja életét - gondolatban együtt utaznak vissza az 1930-as évekbe, Whistle Stopban, ebbe a zsebkendőnyi kisvárosba, ahol Cleo boldog ifjúkorát töltötte. Itt nyitja meg a Feltételes megálló kávézót két fiatal nő, a vagány, fiús Idgie és a szelíd Ruth, aki erőszakos férjétől, egy rossz házasságból menekül barátnőjéhez. A két nő szerelmes barátsága nem csak a seriff látogatásait vagy a Ku Klux klán kegyetlenkedéseit éli túl, de még a kisváros nyugalmát felkavaró titokzatos gyilkosság felderítésében is fontos szerepet játszik. A válságos gazdasági helyzetben lévő ország eme kicsiny szegletébe beköltözik a boldogság, két barátnő képében, akiktől mindenki kap egy tál meleg ételt, egy jó szót, legyen az az országutak porát koptató csavargó, vagy környékbeli szegény fekete. És ahogy az emlékek felelevenednek, Evelyn élete sem lesz már soha többé ugyanolyan...

Fannie Flagg - Can't ​Wait to Get to Heaven
Combining ​southern warmth with unabashed emotion and side-splitting hilarity, Fannie Flagg takes readers back to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where the most unlikely and surprising experiences of a high-spirited octogenarian inspire a town to ponder the age-old question: Why are we here? Life is the strangest thing. One minute, Mrs. Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs, and the next thing she knows, she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet. Meanwhile, back home, Elner's nervous, high-strung niece Norma faints and winds up in bed with a cold rag on her head; Elner's neighbor Verbena rushes immediately to the Bible; her truck driver friend, Luther Griggs, runs his eighteen-wheeler into a ditch - and the entire town is thrown for a loop and left wondering, “What is life all about, anyway?” Except for Tot Whooten, who owns Tot's Tell It Like It Is Beauty Shop. Her main concern is that the end of the world might come before she can collect her social security. In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful: Heaven is actually right here, right now, with people you love, neighbors you help, friendships you keep. Can't Wait to Get to Heaven is proof once more that Fannie Flagg “was put on this earth to write” (Southern Living), spinning tales as sweet and refreshing as iced tea on a summer day, with a little extra kick thrown in.
