Book Description

20 May 1993

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...

5.0 out of 5 stars totally hilarious 3 July 2001
By A Customer
Not many books get me laughing out loud, but this did in almost every chapter. After seeing the movie of 'Fried Green Tomatoes', I've since tried to read everything this lady has written. And I've loved all of them. Her honesty permeates throughout her books, and Daisy Fay is just so comical in her outlook and naivety, and the wonderful cast of characters around her are the work of a true artist!

5.0 out of 5 stars the most amazing book ever 20 Feb 2005
Daisy fay and the miracle man is THE best book in the world. I first read it when I was 11 and have re-read it again and again for well over ten years. It's hilarious and will make you laugh until you cry. It's very difficult to put down because its full of one adventure after another. Daisy is a wonderful character, with a father somewhat like the hapless Al Bundy from 'Married with Children,'always getting her (and himself)into scrapes but with a heart of gold. It apeals to all ages. Treat yourself and buy it for the best read you'll ever have!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful book 8 Jan 2003
By rmc
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book takes the form of a journal of a young girl. She records the details of her life as a child through to early adulthood. It is a beautiful, yet sad book. Her circumstances and the people in her life could leave her embittered but she never loses her innocent charm and acceptance of all that life holds. As is typical when we see things through the eyes of a child, there are loads of really funny moments but many others that will make you weep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, Funny and Tragic and just perfect. 1 Oct 2000
By Mrs. K. A. Wheatley TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I love this book. Daisy Fay is a tremendous character. Flagg manages to get the thoughts of this little girl perfectly down on paper. You believe in Daisy, you will Daisy to come through. She is a real heroine. It made me laugh and it made me cry. A tremendous book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Daisy Fay and the Miracle Man 20 Aug 2006
By Lucy Reynolds VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Once again, this is a Fannie Flagg novel that ticks all the right boxes.

It is written from the perspective of Daisy Fay, a young girl growing up in a small town on the Mississippi coast.

Her life is turbulent from the start, and she is always getting into some kind of trouble, but she maintains a sassy and humorous attitude.

Once I'd started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. It's wonderful!

5.0 out of 5 stars Daisy Fay became my favourite character - ever! 17 April 2000
By A Customer
No father's daughter, could fail to take Daisy Fay to their heart. She spins the most deliciously funny tales full of mischief and mayhem, especially the ghost trail at the school bazaar! Read it and become part of her world. It is, without doubt, the funniest story I've read in a LONG time. Perhaps one day we'll see it on screen. My ticket's booked!
