Synopsis:

Strange things begin to happen when Mrs. Shimfessle, an eighty-year-old woman, falls out of a fig tree in her own front yard, in an entertaining new novel about one woman's offbeat experiences in the hereafter. Reader's Guide included. Reprint. 250,000 first printing.


Review:

"The lessons in Fannie Flagg's funny and utterly charming new novel are down-home simple but effective: Enjoy your time on Earth. Be nice. Eat cake....And take care that you don't meet your Maker in a ratty old bathrobe, because wouldn't you just die of embarrassment if you weren't already dead?"

Miami Herald, 07/04/2006

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 203 x 135 mm. Brand New Book. Combining southern warmth with unabashed emotion and side-splitting hilarity, Fannie Flagg takes readers back to Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where the most unlikely and surprising experiences of a high-spirited octogenarian inspire a town to ponder the age-old question: Why are we here? Life is the strangest thing. One minute, Mrs. Elner Shimfissle is up in her tree, picking figs, and the next thing she knows, she is off on an adventure she never dreamed of, running into people she never in a million years expected to meet. Meanwhile, back home, Elner s nervous, high-strung niece Norma faints and winds up in bed with a cold rag on her head; Elner s neighbor Verbena rushes immediately to the Bible; her truck driver friend, Luther Griggs, runs his eighteen-wheeler into a ditch-and the entire town is thrown for a loop and left wondering, What is life all about, anyway? Except for Tot Whooten, who owns Tot s Tell It Like It Is Beauty Shop. Her main concern is that the end of the world might come before she can collect her social security. In this comedy-mystery, those near and dear to Elner discover something wonderful: Heaven is actually right here, right now, with people you love, neighbors you help, friendships you keep. Can t Wait to Get to Heaven is proof once more that Fannie Flagg was put on this earth to write (Southern Living), spinning tales as sweet and refreshing as iced tea on a summer day, with a little extra kick thrown in.
