This week I'm reading Truck: A Love Story, by Michael Perry.

So far, this is my favorite Michael Perry book. I can appreciate the self-depreciating humor; I am the same way. 

I admit, it is the love story between Anneliese and himself, not the love story between Perry and his International that I enjoy reading most.  He details the growth of a relationship in a refreshingly authentic and humorous way.

I certainly can't ignore his descriptions of small-town Wisconsin life.  I am a resident of a small, southwestern Wisconsin town. Population 600 (give or take ten). He's not embellishing...if you want to know what it is like to live in a small town in Wisconsin, read his books.
