Alisa from Mason, OH said on Goodreads:
I've always found the movie totally charming, and the book is even more so. Here we get a lot more of the back story of the Threadgoode family, and Idgie's relationship with Ruth. The story moves back and forth in time, and it is interspersed with amusing clips from the Whistle Stop newspaper.
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 '30s 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....
