I Love You, Miss Huddleston: And Other Inappropriate Longings of My Indiana Childhood
With engaging wit, favorite hometown storyteller Philip Gulley recalls his childhood during the early 1970's in the small town of Danville, Indiana, where he still lives today and the many formative events, such as the titular crush on his sixth grade teacher that resulted in many fruitless endeavors to get held back in school (it didn't work). A walk down memory lane for boomers, I Love You, Miss Huddleston evokes memories of the glory days growing up, a life that we all secretly want to recapture. Without video games to entertain him, and the world at his fingertips, Gulley sets out on his bicycle with only a few rules to guide him - not to cause his death (or anyone elses), to always wear clean underwear, and to be home by suppertime. This rolicking portrait also includes his occasional detours into depravity in the company of Suds Norton, Polack Barret, and other good-natured miscreants, telling the raucous stories of the trouble they could get into with such everyday items as a bushel of tomatoes, a few cases of bug spray, and a misplaced mannequin they named Ginger.Humorous, poignant, and nostalgic in tone, I Love You, Miss Huddleston is reminiscent of television's The Wonder Years, Jean Shepherd's A Christmas Story and the writings of Garrison Keillor.
