A+ I Love You, Miss Huddleston is a wonderful reminiscence into Philip Gulley's Indiana Childhood. In the same great style as 'A Christmas Story'; it leaves the reader feeling as if they were right there with Philip during his hilarious childhood years.

A+ I Love You, Miss Huddleston is a wonderful reminiscence into Philip Gulley's Indiana Childhood. Пользовательский отзыв - roydknight - LibraryThing. Absolutely fell in love with this book. I was familiar with Gulley from his other more thelogical works cowritten with James Mulholland (also very good!), so I was delighted to find a work so vastly.

Read, "I Love You, Miss Huddleston" by Philip Gulley. I chuckled my way all the way through I Love You, Miss Huddleston. I picked this one up off the library shelf just to have something to read, and found myself enjoying it very much that are based on humor, such as Dawn French's "Dear Fatty" and "The Gerbil Farmer's Daughter" by Holly Robinson. Philip Gulley has written an incredibly entertaining small-town Midwest memoir - shades of Bill Bryson, Garrison Keillor and Jean Shepherd (A Christmas Story) all wrapped up together.

I Love You, Miss Huddleston: And Other Inappropriate Longings of My Indiana Childhood. The timing of my birth couldn’t have been better-with no one guiding my every step, my childhood was one of unrelieved and happy chaos. It’s been said that a miserable life makes for good writing. If that is so, my parents failed to groom me for this vocation. They did, however, prepare me for deep satisfaction.

Philip Gulley’s memoir is sweet and funny - funny enough that you’re tempted to read parts aloud just to amuse yourself further. 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 ar. .

Yet another wonderful book by Philip Gulley. The things he writes about made me think of some of the happenings in my own life years back.

book by Philip Gulley. You make my mind rest in a wonderful way. Your childhood reminds me of a sweeter Jean Shepherd. Good job! Another Terrific Book. Yet another wonderful book by Philip Gulley. There were many times I laughed out loud. I would recommend this book to anyone.

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.

Philip Gulley's sweet-natured 2009 memoir I LOVE YOU, MISS HUDDLESTON tricked me. I first saw this book at the GLBT store Brushstrokes in Atlanta and made a note to order in online, where I saw a cheap used copy. I assumed that since that bookstore was carrying it the tome was a gay-friendly coming of age tale about growing up in Indiana, something akin to A LITTLE FRUITCAKE or MISSISSIPPI SISSY. So it worked its way off my "to read" shelf and I was shocked to discover that not only was the author married with children, but also a Quaker pastor! That being said, it was a pleasant book, filled with good-natured humor and thankfully not in the least bit preachy. It harkens back to the days when religion was not fraught with politics and being a pastor was a career choice, like a doctor or a teacher. Gulley is quite well-known in certain circles for a series of books about a fictitious Quaker community called Harmony and a series of essays collected as the FRONT PORCH series. By all accounts he is a progressive pastor with a level of intelligence not often seen in the current blogosphere. The book itself is a humorous account of life in the 1960s and 1970s in Danville, Indiana. Philip was the fourth of five children born to a Catholic mother and a DDT-selling father. The book chronicles several hallmarks of the coming of age memoir, including family camping trips, paper routes and Halloween. These long-lost reflections of a vanquished small town life are funny and enjoyable with just the right dose of nostalgia and humor. Philip and I are not that far apart in age, so a lot of his upbringing I could relate to, as can most Gen Xers I'm sure. The days of spending the summer outdoors and hanging with your friends until it gets dark without the worry of slow downloads or bounced checks strikes a chord. Gulley captures these moments with style and grace.

Years ago I read both 'Hometown Tales', and 'Front Porch Tales' and absolutely loved them. This latest book of short stories was no different. Mr Gulley has become my 'Master of Main Street'! Every time I picked up this book, I was transported to a simpler time, a place where I would love to have grown up, or have my son grow up. Heck, I even googled Danville, In, tried (unsuccessfully) to convince my husband to retire early from the Navy, and pack up and move to this sweet little town I have never been to!

It was strange though, to read this book from the perspective of a mother. Had I read this a few short years ago, I'd have laughed and shook my head at the crazy antics of young boys...now, however, I found myself saying (to no one in particular)...'Where's you bike helmet??', 'Omg, he's gonna lose an eye!', 'Are these kids INSANE?!?! They're never gonna live to see 20?!' (and I'm only 28!). Also, I just love Mr. Gulley's dry sense of humor. He's funny without trying to be, and he embellishes his stories just enough so you get the gist of what happened, but with a little added amusement thrown in.

I DEFINITELY recommend this book, and any other Gulley book you may be interested in. He's a great storyteller, and it's an absolute joy to read his books. Pull up a rocking chair, grab a sweet tea, and be transported to a time when kids were rough and tumble, bike riding, knee-scraping kids.

Gulley is a master of "right word at the right place" getting an audible laugh from reading. Giggling from his writing is constant. Reading about Philip growing up in small-town Indiana even tops a Leno show. Gulley must have had a good childhood, but the way he shares his experiences through his writing makes the reader feel like one of his happy neighbors, if not a childhood pal.

Such delightful selection of words, for just the right moment.
About a summer's garden abundance: "No calculator exists that can accurately extrapolate the tons of tomatoes generated by a hundred plants."
Or the footnote on the church dealing with delinquency: "Quaker men, I would later learn after becoming one, are big believers in the redemptive powers of checkers."
And "mothers were soothing our cowlicks with mother-spit..."

One liners infiltrate the story as frequently as salt crystals in a theatre box of Indiana's Weaver Popcorn. The fast-paced story progression and continuous clean, homey, humor is reminiscent of this author's much acclaimed series of Harmony books. This autobiography is the perfect start, followed then with the entire series. Don't forget the two Christmas specials, both so so-o-o funny, they are like Christmas classics. The wife and I actually sent copies out as Christmas cards to special friends.

Yes, I do own almost every Gulley book. His humorous books could potentially be equaled, but never surpassed in fun entertainment. You'd best read it twice because it is packed so full of laughs you'll likely miss some of the subtle humor during just one read. Recommended without reservation, and you don't even have to be a native of Indiana to enjoy. Just a kid at heart.

Even older youth will like "I LOVE YOU, MISS HUDDLESTON".
With Amazon's price--IT IS A BARGAIN BARREL OF LAUGHS.

I grew up knowing the author's family. His books about Danville, Indiana bring back many memories of a time less hectic in a small town. He paints a positive picture (for the most part) about Danville and its citizens. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and a couple of his other books. I was disappointed that he badmouthed the Catholic Church which he and I grew up attending. This is the reason I gave him four instead of five stars.

A little morally saucy for someone who claims to be a pastor. Justifies or excuses (possibly relishes in) sins of youth. Writing style is moderately fun.
