Seed catalogs are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than Enron and Penthouse combined.
Perry’s Truck is a love song to his vintage truck, but also to so many other parts of his life – gardening, his neighbors, fellow fire fighters, family, seed catalogs, The Joynt bar, his fledgling relationship and his northern Wisconsin home. For those from parts other than Up Nort’, Truck is an education in Wisconsin living. For the rest of us, it’s a familiar, affectionate look at home. Like Garrison Keiller, Perry putters from topic to topic, give each his own amusing spin. A satisfying, amusing and touching book.
