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.
A great read, as always
I so love Fannie Flagg that I'll buy her books, untested or preread. Especially her audiobooks. She makes me laugh, cry, and everything in between. She never disappoints. I read/listen to her "Redbird Christmas" every year, and like all her stuff, it leaves me happy and filled up. This one's excellent: a real feel good kind of read. Curl up with a cup of hot cocoa; you won't be disappointed.
I too LOVE Fannie Flagg, however sadly I found that the main character in this book is so pathetic - that I didn't care what happened to her!
No stars for Fannie
I would rather have my arm chewed off by a pack of wild dogs than listen to this audio book again. I quit after 2 hours. Story is terrible, narrator is boring, sorry... I'm sure she's a great author but this is one for the geriatrics.
