Publisher's Summary

The beloved Fannie Flagg is back and at her irresistible and hilarious best in I Still Dream About You, a comic mystery romp through the streets of Birmingham, Alabama, past, present, and future.
Meet Maggie Fortenberry, a still beautiful former Miss Alabama. To others, Maggie’s life seems practically perfect - she’s lovely, charming, and a successful real-estate agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up in her present condition. She had been on her hopeful way to becoming Miss America and realizing her childhood dream of someday living in one of the elegant old homes on top of Red Mountain, with the adoring husband and the 2.5 children, but then something unexpected happened and changed everything.
Maggie graduated at the top of her class at charm school, can fold a napkin in more than 48 different ways, and can enter and exit a car gracefully, but all the finesse in the world cannot help her now. Since the legendary real-estate dynamo Hazel Whisenknott, beloved founder of Red Mountain Realty, died five years ago, business has gone from bad to worse - and the future isn’t looking much better. But just when things seem completely hopeless, Maggie suddenly comes up with the perfect plan to solve it all.

Another Winner . .

I've always loved Fannie Flagg . . . she is a master storyteller. Not many authors are able to narrate their own books . . . but she does a fantastic job!!! The characters she creates are so representative of so many people we've known and loved or hated throughout life. I'm so glad I bought the audio version . . . it's like remembering when you were small and your parents read you a story . . .

Give it a chance

After the first 2 hours of this book I didn't think I would be able to finish it. It seemed like an exercise in the mundane. The narrator talked a lot more about the feelings and thoughts of the character than any substantive dialog or interaction. After the 3rd or 4th hour I was hooked. I later realized that the beginning was really a good explanation of the characters mind sets. Without it, later in the book you would be cussing at the book for the decisions the characters were making. But the beginning puts you in the right frame of mind to empathize with the characters and understand the "why" behind their actions.
