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 daredevilish 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.
Quotes from Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe
I wonder how many people don’t get the one they want, but end up with the one they’re supposed to be with.
The ones that hurt the most always say the least.
Remember if people talk behind your back, it only means you are two steps ahead.
You know, a heart can be broken, but it keeps on beating, just the same.
