About the Book



A follow-up to "Population: 485, Truck" chronicles a year in which Perry struggles to grow his own food, live peaceably with his neighbors, and sort out his love life. Hilarious and heartfelt, this memoir introduces readers to a wonderful and unique cast of characters.



Book Synopsis



"A touching and very funny account. . . . Thoroughly engaging."--New York Times

Hilarious and heartfelt, Truck: A Love Story is the tale of a man struggling to grow his own garden, fix his old pickup, and resurrect a love life permanently impaired by Neil Diamond. In the process, he sets his hair on fire, is attacked by wild turkeys, and proposes marriage to a woman in New Orleans. The result is a surprisingly tender testament to love.

"Part Bill Bryson, part Anne Lamott, with a skim of Larry the Cable Guy and Walt Whitman creeping around the edges."--Lincoln Journal Star

"Perry takes each moment, peeling it, seasoning it with rich language, and then serving it to us piping hot and fresh."--Chicago Tribune



Review Quotes




"A reminder, by a talent of the hinterlands, to celebrate small-town life and to treasure human relationships." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The deer-hunting, truck-loving Michael Perry has the soul of a poet." -- Chicago Tribune Books
