I have a sequel to the Scavenger out next year (if things stay on schedule) also recording audiobook versions of some of my older work, and working on another book project I hope to announce soon. And always writing columns and essays and songs and whatnot.(less)

“Summer here comes on like a zaftig hippie chick, jazzed on chlorophyll and flinging fistfuls of butterflies to the sun.”
Michael Perry, Population: 485 : Meeting Your Neighbors One Siren at a Time

“I deserve a swift kick in the shorts for all the times I've stubbornly wound my way through the library stacks, my mule head leading the way, searching fruitlessly for information a librarian could put in my hands in a matter of minutes.”
Michael Perry

“It (a singer's voice) sounds as if it was aged in a whiskey cask, cured in an Ozarks smokehouse, dropped down a stone well, pulled out damp, and kept moist in the palm of a wicked woman's hand.”
Michael Perry

Pat Padden Just finished The Jesus Cow, Michael, and I wanted to tell you how much I liked it. I think a lot of Harley's reticence and unwillingness to stand up for himself sometimes when he should is something that will resonate with a lot of people. It was a fun read because it was a gentle joshing about being steamrolled by life and love and politicians, but not an all-out rant. Too much of that going on every day. Thanks for the book!


Michael Perry Hi folks. Just finding my way around here. I will be checking in, but for now my most current information and regular updates will be at www.sneezingcow.com. Thank you for visiting and reading. It's 14 below this morning. Must go check the chickens. They are laying ice cubes.
