Editorial Reviews

Review

“The story blossoms in vintage Flagg style—folksy and feel-good. An abundance of Southern charm will delight both readers eager to journey back to beloved Whistle Stop and also those wanting to visit for the very first time.”Shelf Awareness

“Who can resist a visit to Whistle Stop and all her inhabitants, past and present? No one!”
Library Journal

“Reading this novel is like entering a second childhood.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Flagg’s memorable cast returns to Whistle Stop, Ala., made famous in
Fried Green Tomatoes, in this heartfelt saga. . . . Flagg’s multitude of fans will enjoy reminiscing and learning more secrets from her well-known protagonists.”Publishers Weekly

“Spellbinding storytelling, deftly drawn characters and an unerring ear for credible dialogue . . .
The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop represents a gift, a blessing and a triumph. . . . It showcases Flagg’s ability to write a sweet but never saccharine, comical but never cruel, profound but never pompous narrative; it celebrates the bonds of family and friends—and the possibilities of recovery and renewal.”—Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star

“A charming and heart-warming story”
The Palm Beach Post

The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop is a captivating novel with characters and relationships to be savored, as well as ample servings of hope and inspiration. These are venerable storytelling qualities which surely are needed now more than ever. . . . The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop should garner an even wider fan-base for Flagg, a well-deserved outcome for an exceptional writer.”—New York Journal of Books

About the Author

Fannie Flagg’s career started in the fifth grade when she wrote, directed, and starred in her first play, titled The Whoopee Girls. At age nineteen she was already writing and producing television specials in her hometown of Birmingham, Alabama. At age twenty she went to New York and immediately began writing and acting on Candid Camera, and made over seventy-five appearances on The Tonight Show. She then went on to distinguish herself as an actress and a writer in television, films, and the theater. She is the New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man; Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe; The Whistle Stop Cafe Cookbook; Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!; Standing in the Rainbow; A Redbird Christmas; Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven; I Still Dream About You; The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion; and The Whole Town’s Talking. Flagg’s script for the movie Fried Green Tomatoes was nominated for an Academy Award and the Writers Guild of America Award, and won the highly regarded Scripter Award for best screenplay of the year. She also won the Harper Lee Prize for Fiction. Fannie Flagg loves all animals, especially human beings, and lives happily in California and Alabama.
