I was so drawn to the unique way this novel by Fannie Flagg was constructed that I decided to make a grid to illustrate its design.
In the novel we rove between news reports from a local paper called Weems Weekly; scenes that take place in a Nursing Home or the Whistle Stop Café itself as well as a variety of other locations; while the events take place over a 70-year period between 1917 and 1987.
In the table that you can access from the link below you will see a breakdown according to scene, events, times of occurrence, and the page when each begins.
Different fonts help to characterise particular locations. I hope you find it as much fun to read as I had in compiling it!
