Like the picotal clue in a Conan Doyle story, the American porch hides itself in plain sight. It is uniquely American, but, like our nation, an icon with roots deep into the cultures of the world. It has had to contend with changing takestes, shifting mores, and technological advances that would lead American, a notoriously fickle people, to first embrace, then discard, then rediscover the place where public life meets private.

Author Michael Dolan relates the colorful and surprising history of the porch in this lively journey through architecture, literature, film, photography, and pop culture, from ancient Greece to modern day.

An intriguing an well-written look at architecture and American life.
