Porch Lies This substantial anthology of 10 stories with occasional black and white illustration draws on the African-American tradition of story-telling - when friends and families would gather on the front porch of an evening and exchange tall tales of tricksters and other wily individuals. Retold in rich vernacular speech, the material ranges from comic yarns such as the story of the little old lady who is more than a match for the outlaws Frank and Jesse James, to scary tales involving supernatural characters and events.
