Description


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.
