"Tomates Verdes Fritos" es una novela inolvidable escrita por Fannie Flagg que teje hábilmente dos historias entrelazadas: una ambientada en la década de 1980 en Alabama, y otra en la década de 1920 en el mismo lugar. A través de estos relatos, Flagg te sumerge en un mundo de amistad, amor, resistencia y superación.

La narrativa principal sigue a Evelyn Couch, una mujer de mediana edad que se siente atrapada en una vida monótona y sin sentido. Su encuentro fortuito con Ninny Threadgoode, una encantadora anciana residente en un hogar de ancianos, desencadena una amistad poco probable que cambiará la vida de Evelyn para siempre. A medida que Ninny comparte historias de su pasado y de las coloridas personalidades que poblaron la ciudad de Whistle Stop en la década de 1920, Evelyn encuentra inspiración y fortaleza para enfrentar sus propios desafíos.… (lisätietoja)
