The bestselling author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe is at her superb best in this fun-loving, moving novel about what it means to be truly alive.

One night, over dinner, she had pointed a celery stick at her husband and said, “Herbert, I don’t care about any bottom line, you men have a barber shop, so there’s no reason in the world that our town shouldn’t have a beauty salon.” Herbert knew he would have to give Tot the loan, or he would never hear the end of it. Whenever Ida pointed celery at him, she meant business.
