Body
Fannie Flagg’s book “The Wonder Boy of Whistle Stop” tries to answer the question, “Can you go home again?”. “Bud Threadgoode grew up in the bustling little railroad town of Whistle Stop, Alabama, with his mother Ruth, church going and proper, and the fun-loving hell-raiser, his Aunt Idgie. Together, they ran the town’s popular Whistle Stop Café, known far and wide for its famous ‘Fried Green Tomatoes.’ And as Bud often said of his childhood, ‘How lucky can you get?’ But sadly, the railroad yards began to shut down and the town became a ghost town, with nothing left but boardedup buildings and memories of a happier time. Then one day, Bud decides to take one last trip, just to see where his beloved Whistle Stop used to be. In so doing, he discovers new surprises about Idgie’s life and the town itself. He also sets off a series of events, both touching and inspiring, which changes his life and the lives of his daughter and others.
