Ghost town?

talkThe Whole Town’s Talking by Fannie Flagg, the living and the dead carry on a multi-generational conversation.  The place is Elmwood Springs, Missouri, where the dead never quite go away.  They hang out and offer observations on what the living are up to. Think of it as a feel-good spin on Thornton Wilder’s Our Town.  Flagg (Fried Green Tomatos) “does a clever job of tracking her clan of interconnected families through the decades, including a drive-by from Bonnie and Clyde, a visit from Harry Truman,  four  wars and a death by texting.”  Really.
