Description

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

The beloved Fannie Flagg is 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 agent at Red Mountain Realty. Still, Maggie can’t help but wonder how she wound up living a life so different from the one she dreamed of as a child. But just when things seem completely hopeless, and the secrets of Maggie’s past drive her to a radical plan to solve it all, Maggie discovers, quite by accident, that everybody, it seems, has at least one little secret.

I Still Dream About You
is a wonderful novel that is equal parts southern charm, murder mystery, and that perfect combination of comedy and old-fashioned wisdom that can be served up only by America’s own remarkable Fannie Flagg.

About the Author
FANNIE FLAGG's writing career began behind the scenes of television's "Candid Camera" and progressed to out-in-front as performer-writer. Her acting achievements led to roles in motion pictures including "Five Easy Pieces," with Jack Nicholson; "Stay Hungry," with Jeff Bridges and Sally Field; and, most recently, "Crazy in Alabama," with Melanie Griffith. For the theater in New York she did "Patio Porch "and "Come Back to the Five and Dime, Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean," and played the lead role in the Broadway musical "The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,"
Her first novel, "Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man," was on the "New York Times "bestseller list for ten weeks. Her second, "Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe," praised by Harper Lee and Eudora Welty, was on the "Times" list for thirty-six weeks. It was made into the memorable hit movie "Fried Green Tomatoes," starring Jessica Tandy and Kathy Bates. The screenplay, also written by Flagg, earned her the coveted Scripters Award and was nominated for an Academy Award and the Writers Guild of America Screen Award. Her reading of the Random House audiobook received a Grammy nomination.
That book gave way to an even bigger hardcover success for "Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!, "a "New York Times "Notable Book of the Year, which "The Christian Science Monitor "called "captivating . . . a comic novel to open with open arms." Flagg lives in California and in Alabama.
