The Whole Town's Talking by Fannie Flagg

There’s nothing like a Fannie Flagg book to help a reader slow down and savor life. In this book, the reader gets to stay in touch with the characters after their lives have ended, too, as they greet each other when an old friend becomes a newcomer in the small town cemetery atop the hill. Not morbid in any way, the characters reflect on how leisurely things are for them now, and how they wish they hadn’t sweated the small stuff during their lives. The reader sees things unfold from the beginning of the 1900’s through the beginning of the 2000s, one chronological section at a time. There is humor, but mostly serenity and friendship.
