Front Porch Talk is another lively, heart-warming collection of hilarious autobiographical boyhood tales told by the masterful storyteller John E. Jordan, Jr. These stories of a boy growing up in the southern coalfields of West Virginia in the 1950s are not only highly entertaining but also draw the reader into that bucolic world –:not without its difficulties –: and simpler time. A time of gardening, farming, floods, canning, hunting, industrial change, fishing, family visits, Sunday church, funeral wakes, quilting –: and when fried chicken and bacon were good for you. We step into the world of Johnny, a curious, lively, mischievous handful, whose youthful naï:veté: leads to all kinds of ‘:situations.’: These true tales feature ‘:Ma Maw,’: –: a piously devout, bible toting-bible quoting, tightly wound yet good natured and nurturing grandma –: and Johnny’:s ‘:Pa Paw’: –: a fun-loving prankster and teller of tall tales with such a love for life that the reader can almost feel the twinkle in his eye. Front Porch Talk is rich in detail, giving the reader a glimpse into this by-gone world and revealing the humor hiding around every turn.
