"Waiting On" Wednesday: The Whole Town's Talking


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

The Whole Town's Talking

By Fannie Flagg

Publication Date: October 18

From Amazon:

Elmwood Springs, Missouri, is a small town like any other, but something strange is happening out at the cemetery. “Still Meadows,” as it’s called, is anything but still. Funny and profound, this novel in the tradition of Flagg’s Can’t Wait to Get to Heaven and Thornton Wilder’s Our Town deals with universal themes of heaven and earth and everything in between, as Flagg tells a surprising story of life, afterlife, and the mysterious goings-on of ordinary people.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

I should read this book because I loved Fried Green Tomatoes, and I also read a short story by Fannie Flagg I liked, but I cannot recall the name right now.
