E tale she tells is also of two women of the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend Ruth who back in the thirties ran a little place in This book is fluffy How fluffy?It is as fluffy as floating on cloud while lying on a mattress stuffed with kittens and simultaneously wearing a pink angora jumper and a candy floss hat This is the sort of book I enjoy when my brain decides to take a day off But it is lovely and it is likely that even the most po faced cynics me will be drawn into the warm doughy bosom of this story of love friendship and adversity in 1930s Alabama The history of Whistlestop along with helpful recipe appendices allowing the transposition British readers from the grim north to the Deep South is relayed to the beleaguered Evelyn by old Mrs Threadgoode Aside from the odd murder Whistle Stop is populated by a kind of chocolate box perfection It's a modest but model community with great food the kindness of neighbours life long friendships A kind of Tom SawyerHuck Finn wholesomeness oozes from between each page Living in Toxteth I find it hard to imagine this kind of idealised community of hot buttered biscuit loveliness but it was nice to at least try until the piercing wail of a police siren broke the illusion

BOOK Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe

Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop CafeWhistle Stop Alabama a Southern kind of Cafe Wobegon offering good barbecue and good coffee and all kinds of love and laughter even an occasional murd I really love this movie but as usual the book is much better and vastly different In 1985 two women Ninny and Evelyn meet and develop a strong friendship They share treats and conversation while Ninny spins the story of Whistle Stop and its inhabitants weaving relationships through generations in an enchanting tale of the Old South The journey is eually important for both women allowing Ninny to remember and embrace her past while helping Evelyn to accept her past and look forward to her future Two significant differences exist between the book and the movie; Idgie and Ruth's relationship is blatently lesbian in the movie they were just close friends and the racial atmosphere of Alabama was a much pronounced theme Flagg's storytelling is bittersweet with many touching moments and the cast of characters is wonderful This is a heartwarming look at life death love and friendship and a great example of Southern Literature
