Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man Paperback
by Fannie Flagg
Fannie Flagg takes us on a journey to a South that only Southerners know, to a time when 'Blue Velvet' was played at the Senior Prom, and into the life of Daisy Fay Harper, a sassy, truth-telling heroine who just can't stay out of trouble.
What's more she tells us everything - from what (or who) made her Daddy and Momma split up to what is really stashed in the freezer of the family's malt shop.
Daisy Fay is coming of age in the Gulf Coast's Shell Beach, which is The End of the Road of the South, but a dandy place to meet the locals like hard-drinking Jimmy Snow, former debutante Mrs Dot and Daisy's own Daddy.
They're all part of the fun that takes us down home, back to the '50s, and into the best story ever written east of Texas...

a bit weird, but a good read
Review by Fliss88
This is the fifth novel I've read by Fannie Flagg, and I've thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. Fannie Flagg has the wonderous ability to create characters that just jump off the page and into your life. The story is all about one Daisy Fay Harper a girl born in Jackson, Mississippi, her coming of age, her family and their life growing up in the 50's in the "Gulf Coast's shell Beach, which is The End of the Road of the South". Great reading, I loved it!!
