The Front Porch Prophet 

  Request this author
What do a trigger-happy bootlegger with pancreatic cancer, an alcoholic helicopter pilot who is afraid to fly, and a dead man with his feet in a camp stove have in common? What are the similarities between a fire department that cannot put out fires, a policeman who has an historic cabin fall on him from out of the sky, and an entire family dedicated to a variety of deceased authors? Where can you find a war hero named Termite with a long knife stuck in his liver, a cook named Hoghead who makes the world's worst coffee, and a supervisor named Pillsbury who nearly gets hung by his employees? The answers to these questions can be found in Sequoyah, Georgia, the home of A.J. Longstreet and his lifelong friend and sometime adversary, Eugene Purdue. Share in the relationship between these two men as they experience Eugene's final days. Observe their friendship as they explore the concepts of fidelity, brotherhood, mortality, and euthanasia from a decidedly Southern perspective. Take this gripping journey to North Georgia and witness A.J.'s inner struggles as he confronts the realities of Eugene's impending demise. Accompany A.J. on his journeys to the past as he revisits the people and places who made him what he is. And join him as he makes the decision that will alter his life forever.
