This is an auction for WELCOME TO THE WORLD, BABY GIRL! by Fannie Flagg.

"Author of the best-selling Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe (1987) and cowriter of the script for the popular movie based on that book, Flagg follows up with this sentimental look at small-town life. Set during the late 1970s, the novel follows the career of Dena Nordstrom, a hard-charging TV anchorwoman determined to make her mark in prime-time television, although she has qualms about its change in focus from hard news to scandalmongering. Despite her aura of confidence, however, Dena is having a tough time. Plagued by a drinking problem and a bleeding ulcer, Dena finally consults a psychiatrist, who helps her face her traumatic feelings about her mysterious, emotionally distant mother and her nomadic childhood. Finally unlocking the secret of her racial heritage, Dena decides to chuck New York for the slower pace and friendly atmosphere of her hometown of Elmwood Springs, Missouri. Framing Dena's story are excerpts from an old-timey radio show broadcast in the '40s and portraits of Dena's eccentric, lovable relatives. With its colloquial style, focus on family problems, and small-town setting, this novel won't disappoint fans of Fried Green Tomatoes."
