Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg. Folksy and fresh, endearing and affecting, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle-Stop Cafe is a now-classic novel about two women--Evelyn, who’s in the sad slump of middle age and gray-headed Mrs. Threadgoode, who’s telling her life story. Her tale includes two more women—the irrepressibly dare devilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth—who back in the thirties ran a little place in Whistle Stop, Alabama, offering good coffee, southern barbecue, and all kinds of love and laughter—even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present will never be quite the same again.
