Right in the middle of everywhere, which could be anywhere. WWII has ended and the joyous transitions to peace are being — mostly — embraced. This book portrays characters ranging from Bobby Smith, the son of the well-known radio hostess Neighbour Dorothy, to the phenomena known as the Sunset Club, Dinner on the Ground and the Funeral King.
Though her friends think Maggie has the perfect life, she's actually perfectly miserable. The former Miss Alabama is worried about how her life has turned out-she's given up on her dream of living in a beautiful home like Crestview, and instead is a real estate agent in Birmingham. But just when Maggie begins to wonder if there's much point in going on, her life takes a wild turn, and she finds herself catapulted into one surprising discovery after the next. As Maggie learns valuable lessons about the nature of friendship, the challenges of modern life, and the dangers of impossible dreams, she starts to see how much more there is to life than what can be listed in a Miss Alabama bio. Bestselling author Fannie Flagg's trademark comic flair is out in full force in this fabulous new novel about the unpredictability of life.
