Review ~ Michael Perry’s Truck: A Love Story


For the past week and a 1/2 I have been reading Michael Perry’s book….Truck a Love Story.  I only now have found this Wisconsin author and so far I am loving his writing. I am going to keep this review short and sweet because I don’t want to give away too much. Truck is about Michael’s “mission” to get his 1951 International Harvestor truck running and operational by Deer Season (a “holiday” that we take VERY seriously here in Wisconsin).  Along the way readers will learn why “seed catalogs are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than Enron and Penthouse combined,” why squirrels are evil, a little bit about Mike’s dating life and a little bit about his interesting neighbors.

I really enjoyed this book.  Plus the author lives only a few hours north of where I live!  I enjoyed this book so much that I can hardly wait to start reading his new book Coop.  I’ve heard great things about it. I giggled most of the way through this book because Mike paints such vivid pictures with his words that you can imagine yourself there with him.  I hope that you will check this book out!
