America's Back Porch
Daniel Jeffreys

4 3/4" x 7 1/2" • 304 pages
ISBN 9780704381223 • paperback • $15.00

In Murray, Kentucky, they have more teenage vampires than fried chicken. In Capshaw, Alabama, the prison guards relax after work by dancing with grizzly bears. While in Los Angeles, a Dalmatian puppy called Cotton is about to have his first face lift. Welcome to America's Back Porch, where this extraordinary nation has its strangest conversations. Daniel Jeffreys had journeyed to the twisted heart of America and conducted his own referendum on the state of the American spirit. America's Back Porch is the result.

Daniel Jeffreys grew up in Bristol but has spent the last ten years traveling in America as a New York correspondent for BBC Television and now as a regular contributor to the Daily Mail, The Times and U.S. Marie Clarie. The father of triplets, he lives in New York City with his wife and is co-producing three feature films based on his stories.
