Description
The author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe—and the Oscar-nominated screenplay adaptation, Fried Green Tomatoes—Fannie Flagg offers this comic mystery romp through the past, present, and future streets of Birmingham, Alabama. Maggie Fortenberry, a former Miss Alabama and now a lovely, charming, successful agent at Red Mountain Realty, can't help but wonder how she wound up living a life so different from the one she dreamed of as a child—and whether this life is even worth living. But before she manages to end it all, however, life has another surprise to hand to Maggie, and this one changes everything.

"Undoubtedly her wisest book, comic and compassionate.... Born of a tender heart and nurtured by an imaginative mind, it's certain to touch the reader's soul."—Richmond Times Dispatch

"Flagg's whimsical heartstring tugger (after Can't Wait to Get to Heaven) follows the continually interrupted suicide attempt of a former Birmingham, Alabama, beauty queen, now 60 and a realtor.... Still grieving over the loss of her best friend and unceasingly optimistic boss, Hazel Whizenknott, Maggie feels like a failure: the business is in decline, and she's lamenting a lifetime's worth of chances missed, including turning down her one true love. In fact, she's come up with 16 'perfectly good reasons to jump in the river' and only two reasons not to. Of course, there is hope to be found—professionally, personally, perhaps romantically—even in Maggie's darkest hours. Flagg gives the story some breadth with a subplot about a friend's campaign to become Birmingham's first black mayor. Maggie's quandary, meanwhile, is detailed with Flagg's trademark light touch and a sincere wit that's heavier on heart than sass."—Publishers Weekly
