Idgie Threadgoode is a true original: Huckleberry Finn would have tried to marry her!”
–Harper Lee, Author of To Kill a Mockingbird

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…
