“The All-Girl Filling Station’s Last Reunion” Author: Fannie Flagg Publisher: Random House Pages: 367 Price: $15.00 (paper)
“The All Girls Filling Station’s Last Reunion” is Fannie Flagg’s ninth novel and her fans are going to love it.
Descriptions of this novel by reviewers and by Flagg’s friends Mark Childress, Pat Conroy and Carol Burnett include: funny, quirky, charming, kind, entertaining, page-turner, sunny, witty, warm-hearted and of course, heartwarming. And it’s true.
It is often useful to begin with the title. In the novel, a family drive to the end of the rainbow and then stand in it, where it touches the ground. I am assured that this can actually be done. In any case, it is a metaphor.
