It's my new favorite writer, New York TImes best-selling author Michael Perry, who'll be at the Fairfield Public Library 3pm on Sunday, May 12th. You definitely want to spend some time with this guy. Funny and humble as hell, the amateur pig farmer's latest book VISITING TOM is a gem. He told me his writing was inspired by Greg Brown & Steve Earle. And wait till you hear his band The Long Beds. Perry’s bestselling memoirs include Population 485, Truck: A Love Story, and Coop. The Wisconsin farm boy writes regularly for Men's Health,and has contributed to Esquire, Runner's World, New York Times Magazine and Salon.com. His website is sneezingcow.com.
