Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe: A Novel

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg

June 12, 1929

Cafe Opens

The Whistle Stop Cafe opened up last week, right next door to me at the post office, and owners Idgie Threadgoode and Ruth Jamison said business has been good ever since. Idgie says that for people who know her not to worry about getting poisoned, she is not cooking. All the cooking is being done by two colored women, Sipsy and Onzell, and the barbecue is being cooked by Big George, who is Onzell’s husband.

  1. This is one of those cases where the book and the movie are both outstanding. I loved them both!

    • I’ve been meaning to read the book and watch the movie for a very long time but just never did. I saw it on Amazon and figured it was time. Glad to know you loved both!

  2. I loved the movie! Unfortunately I don’t think I ever read the book. I have read a couple of her other novels though and those have been really good!

  3. I think I read this years ago, but I don’t remember it.

  4. I’ve always wanted to read this one and watch the movie, but I never got around to it. I still want to. Great choice!
