About the Book

Visiting Tom: A Man, a Highway, and the Road to Roughneck Grace

by Michael Perry

TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE meets Bill Bryson in VISITING TOM, another witty, poignant, and stylish paean to living in New Auburn, Wisconsin, from Michael Perry. The author of POPULATION:485, COOP, and TRUCK: A LOVE STORY, Perry takes us along on his uplifting visits with his octogenarian neighbor one valley over—and celebrates the wisdom, heart, and sass of a vanishing generation that embodies the indomitable spirit of small-town America.
