Michael Perry – Visiting Tom.


Visiting Tom:  A Man, a Highway, and the Road to Roughneck Grace – Michael Perry (2012: HarperCollins Publishers, New York)

Once again Michael Perry completely wows me with his staggeringly beautiful (and often humorous) prose and quiet insights into life.  In Visiting Tom, kitchen table talks with a good friend and neighbour offer up decades of wisdom and practical philosophy…all cleverly framed by the nightmares of road construction.   As always, Perry’s work tugs on the heartstrings at the same time you’re laughing out loud.
