Truck A Love Story - P.S. Author:Michael Perry 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.
This book should be read by any aspiring writer and every high school composition class. It is not a book about writing, but one of the absolute best written memoirs I've ever read. Perry writes makes allusions to classical literature, pop culture, modern physics and other equally eclectic topics with tack-sharp wit. His voice is refreshing, his vocabulary wide-ranging, and his heart unmistakable. This books makes me want to read more of his writing, with the only trepidation that I might not like his other books as much as this one!
