Welcome to the World, Baby Girl! is the funny, serious, and
compelling new novel by Fannie Flagg, author of the beloved
Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe (and
prize-winning co-writer of the classic movie).
Once again, Flagg's humor and respect and affection for her
characters shine forth. Many inhabit small-town or suburban
America. But this time, her heroine is urban: a brainy,
beautiful, and ambitious rising star of 1970s television.
Dena Nordstrom, pride of the network, is a woman whose
future is full of promise, her present rich with
complications, and her past marked by mystery.
