About the Book

In the vein of Bill Bryson’s The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid, with a dash of some of the homegrown nostalgia of The Dangerous Book for Boys and A Prairie Home Companion, humorist Philip Gulley (Front Porch Tales, Home to Harmony) tells of his coming of age in small-town Indiana.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Philip Gulley’s memoir is sweet and funny - funny enough that you’re tempted to read parts aloud just to amuse yourself further.” —Jay Allison, host and curator, NPR's "This I Believe"

“Gulley has illuminated a childhood where risk and frivolity are combined into one. An engrossing and propelling story that never once lets the reader forget that it’s our youth that makes us all what we are….” —Doug Crandell, author of Pig Boy's Wicked Bird and The Flawless Skin of Ugly People

“A wonderful account of the treasures, trials and plain old wackiness of growing up in small town Indiana. Gulley tells his stories with a bright intelligence, a wry wink and warm-hearted good humor, which are at the same time tender, thought provoking and downright hilarious.” —Carrie Newcomer, singer and songwriter

“Philip Gulley gives us the good laugh, the good cry and a good read of a world still in reach through faith and family.” —Thomas Lynch, author of The Undertaking

“A laugh-out-loud funny tweaking of a not terribly misspent youth.” —Publisher's Weekly

“Flat-out hilarious.” —Booklist

“...a positive, feel-good escape in times that aren’t so simple anymore.” —The Miami Herald

“In the fashion of Mark Twain and Garrison Keillor, Gulley has crafted a book that is great fun, but fun with a message beneath the surface.” —Indianapolis Star
