One never knows what the topic of discussion will be when taking a seat with the gentlemen in the Backbooth at Chappy’s Deli in Auburn, Alabama.
The topics change daily, often several times within the same sitting. The conversation is broad and knows no bounds.
This book is a collection of the group's thoughts, recollections, hopes, and dreams. In addition to football, politics and religion, there are stories of friends and neighbors, and of people the gentlemen know only through the news media - mostly imperfect people in an imperfect world doing the best they can.
Filled with Southern charm and keen insights, you’ll finish this book convinced that the world would be better if we as a nation had more conversations like those that take place in the backbooth at Chappy’s.
