Product Description

Beloved American storyteller Philip Gulley evokes a time when life revolved around the front porch, where friends gathered, stories were told, and small moments took on large meaning. In today's hurry-up world, Gulley's observations are frank and funny, reminding us of the world we once shared, and can again.

With poignancy and humor, Gulley writes about small-town life, things he thinks about while sitting in his Quaker meeting, and why Donald Trump should pay more taxes. Porch Talk is a tribute to common folk, including Charlie the hardware priest, the Bettys at the newspaper, and other paragons of decency not many people know, but should.

    I LOVE this book. Gulley relates to the heart of the matter with humor and a deeper message. I really enjoyed the book and it was thought provoking. I am passing it on to a friend because it was so good!

    I have not yet finished the book, but what I have read I have really enjoyed. The very first chapter reminded me of my childhood and the house that I grew up in, it had a front porch and many a summer day we spent alot of time sitting out there and talking. When it was hot I even slept out there. Back then they did not have air conditioning in the homes. It is a good book and I highly recommend it for good reading.
