I Still Dream About You
By Fannie Flagg
Random House · $26 · 336 pages
ISBN 9781400065936 · Published November 9, 2010
Review by Lizza Connor Bowen
The old adage, “Life’s better in the movies,” certainly applies to Margaret Fortenberry. Fortenberry, a Birmingham native who was crowned Miss Alabama in her youth, grew up in a Technicolor world that, by the novel’s opening, has long since faded away. As a girl, her father operated the Dreamland Theatre, and the family lived in the same building that housed the old movies. Every night, Maggie (as she was called by friends) drifted off to silver-screen dreams.
