Product Details


"Part portrait of a place, part rescue manual, part rumination on life and death, Population: 485 is a beautiful meditation on the things that matter."--Seattle Times on Population: 485 "A delightfully quirky account of a year in a mid-American life spent restoring a 1951 International Harvester, cultivating a garden, and falling in love."--USA Today on Truck "Drop whatever you are doing and sit down to read Michael Perry's Visiting Tom....Perry is a craftsman of the highest order....When you go back to doing what you were doing when you picked up this book, you might just see your world with a broader, more humane perspective."--New York Journal of Books on Visiting Tom "Displays Perry's charming penchant for nurturing things to life-be it a truck or a garden, a community or a baby-while, at the same time, nodding to the past. . . . Perry can take comfort in the power of his writing, his ability to pull readers from all corners onto his Wisconsin spread, and make them feel right at home among the chickens."--Seattle Times on Coop "Readers will laugh out loud frequently while taking in this very funny memoir, as this reviewer did, yet it's a profound laughter, the kind that gets you thinking.... One couldn't hope for a better introduction to the work of Perry or Montaigne."--Library Journal, starred review "Perry's refreshing candor, the essence of the personal essay, serves him well.... 'You read Montaigne, you feel like you have a friend, ' writes the author, and so readers are likely to feel about Perry."--Kirkus "A fun commentary on small-town America and today's insatiable appetite for goofy stories to fill the Web."--New York Post (Required Reading--lead pick) on The Jesus Cow "Perry's poignant, balanced, achingly funny prose is more than an ode to or critique of Michel De Montaigne. Instead, Perry uses the original essays to better understand his own life and bring a bit more humanity to an increasingly divisive world."--Los Angeles Review of Books "Of the recent books extolling and commending French essayist Michel de Montaigne, Michael Perry's new one might be the Montaignest."--Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
