The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion

by

The All-Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion Cover

 

Staff Pick

Oh, it's a happy day when there is a brand-new Fannie Flagg novel! There is something so comforting and soothing about diving into her version of small-town Alabama. Here she follows two families; the Simmonses of Point Clear, Alabama, in 2005 and the Jurdabralinskis of Pulaski, Wisconsin, during WWII. Flagg deftly weaves the stories of her families closer together as the novel progresses, but the real fun in a Flagg novel is not necessarily the plot yielding its secrets, but much more so the journey. The characters and the tiny Alabama town will completely charm you; how lovely it is to feed the birds in the morning, to know all of your neighbors, to sleep with the doors unlocked, and to hear that screen door banging shut. Even if, like me, you've never lived in a small town, you will instantly recognize and long for Flagg's version of "home." As an added bonus, this novel is completely hilarious!

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, and she has not stopped since. At age nineteen she began writing and producing television specials, and later wrote for and appeared on Candid Camera. She then went on to distinguish herself as an actress and a writer in television, films, and the theater. She is the bestselling author of Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man; Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe; 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; and The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion. 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. Flagg is the winner of the Harper Lee Prize. Flagg lives happily in California and Alabama.
