Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man
By: Fannie Flagg (author)Paperback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Fannie Flagg takes us on a journey to a South that only Southerners know, to a time when 'Blue Velvet' was played at the Senior Prom, and into the life of Daisy Fay Harper, a sassy, truth-telling heroine who just can't stay out of trouble. What's more she tells us everything - from what (or who) made her Daddy and Momma split up to what is really stashed in the freezer of the family's malt shop. Daisy Fay is coming of age in the Gulf Coast's Shell Beach, which is The End of the Road of the South, but a dandy place to meet the locals like hard-drinking Jimmy Snow, former debutante Mrs Dot and Daisy's own Daddy. They're all part of the fun that takes us down home, back to the '50s, and into the best story ever written east of Texas...
Fannie Flagg began writing and producing television specials at the age of nineteen, and went on to distinguish herself as an actress, novelist and scriptwriter. She starred on Broadway in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas in 1980, and appeared in films including Five Easy Pieces, Stay Hungry and Grease. She is the author of Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man, which spent ten weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, which became a worldwide bestseller, and was made into a much loved film with a prize-winning screenplay co-written by Flagg herself and, most recently, Welcome to the World, Baby Girl!. She lives in California.
