Out on the Porch: An Evocation in Words and Pictures
by Reynolds Price
Publisher's Description
"On the Porch celebrates the beauty of porches, how we live on them, and the way we feel about them. It brings together over one hundred contemporary photographs and rare pictures from family archives and albums, porches ranging from magnificent galleries and porticos to humble back stoops and balconies. Here, too, scenes, recollections, and conversations have been drawn from the many great southern writers . . . William Faulkner, James Agee, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Thomas Wolfe, Mark Twain. . . and Annie Dillard. Reynolds Price's introduction . . . recalls his memories from boyhood spent in and around `a particular porch in Warren, North Carolina.'"--the publisher.
