Special ColumbiaMagazine.com book review
Carol Perkins newest book "Let's Keep Talking About.... " is a collection of her best articles throughout the years.
The book features articles such as Parasailing, The Bullfight, and My Nose Knows, a few of which have appeared on Sundays with CM on ColumbiaMagazine.com.
They are all written with the insight and warm humor which has endeared Carol Perkins to her thousands of loyal fans on CM.
The stories are about life as only she can relate it.They are about her experiences in Edmonton and Metcalfe, and humorous adventures around the world, as well.
But they are so much more. Her style has been compared to that of Erma Bombeck, and this quality is readily apparent.
But it's a style inspired not so much by the famous columnist, as it is of growing up in a family of talented entertainers and famous storytellers, and living in a place - Metcalfe Co., KY - where storytelling itself is a revered art form; where every venue is a stage, every citizen a performer - and performance the stuff of oral history. Many of stories are just that: Oral history transformed into prose vignettes transforming experiences everyone has had, but only Carol Perkins can record.
Others take a more serious approach, and reveal a deep sense of concern for social justice and social courtesies.
The books are $15 and $3 for shipping.
Carol Perkins' first book, Let's Talk About can still be purchased for $10 per copy. There are about twenty remaining, she says, and encourages readers to buy a set for Christmas gifts.
