Publisher's Summary

As 80-year-old Mrs Cleo Threadgoode tells Evelyn Couch her life story, she escapes the Rose Terrace Nursing Home and returns to Whistle Stop, Alabama, in the 1930s. She tells the tale of two women: the irrepressibly daredevilish tomboy Idgie and her friend, Ruth, who, back in the 30s, ran a little place offering good barbecue, good coffee, all kinds of love and laughter, and even an occasional murder. And as the past unfolds, the present, for Evelyn and for us, will never be quite the same.


What the Critics Say

Abridged version, but still a great listen.

Would you consider the audio edition of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe to be better than the print version?

This was the abridged version, so the full book would have to be even better. Loved the author reading the story ... gave credibility and sense of being in the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Listen to audio books when walking and look forward to each occasion. However, this is not a particularly long version and if you had a few hours up your sleeve, it would be great to listen to this in one sitting.
