Michael Perry discovered the great French essayist Michel de Montaigne courtesy of a kidney stone. After passing "the Devil's own gobstopper," Perry-volunteer firefighter and chronicler of contemporary rural life- discovered Montaigne had documented his own kidney stone experience. With humor and humility, Perry examines Montaigne in a variety of contexts, always looking to Montaigne for clues on how to best live as we move "both toward perfection and decay."

 

Michael Perry is a humorist, radio host, songwriter, and the New York Times bestselling author of several nonfiction books, including Visiting Tom and Population: 485, as well as a novel, The Jesus Cow. He lives in northern Wisconsin with his family and can be found online at www.sneezingcow.com
