Last summer, I browsed through a bookstore in Charlevoix, Michigan. Love that town.
I happened to see this book, Truck: A Love Story, by Michael Perry. I was intrigued by the cover, which looked like a place I wanted to visit, and then delighted by the picture of the author, who looked like a man who knew tractors. I trust men who know tractors.
Perry lives in New Auburn, Wisconsin -- population under 500, thank you very much -- and volunteers on the local fire department. He is a country boy, and proud of it. He makes me laugh. Here are a couple of his other books, Coop, and Population: 485.
You can learn more about Mr. Perry on his website, Sneezing Cow. Yes, Sneezing Cow.
His new book, Visiting Tom, comes out August 21st. Sneak Peek below!
