Perry has woven familiar and unique one liners in his description of Foggy Crossing, a rural Wisconsin town I appreciated his unique material best, but found myself laughing at the familiar as well.

www.sneezingcow.com.Perry s essays and nonfiction have appeared in numerous publications including The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Backpacker, Outside, Runner s World, Salon.com, and he is a contributing editor to Men s Health magazine His writing assignments have taken him to the top of Mt Rainier with Iraq War veterans, into the same room as the frozen head of Ted Williams, across the United States with truckers and country music singers, and once buck naked into a spray tan booth.In the essay collection Off Main Street, Perry wrote of how his nursing education prepared him to become a writer by training him in human assessment, and he credits singer songwriters like Steve Earle and John Prine with helping him understand that art need not wear fancy clothes Above all, he gives credit to his parents, of whom he says, Anything good is because of them, everything else is simply not their fault His mother taught him to read and filled the house with books his father taught him how to clean calf pens, of which Perry has written, a childhood spent slinging manure the metaphorical basis for a writing career Perry has recently been involved in several musical collaborations, including as lyricist for Grammy nominated jazz pianist Geoffrey Keezer, and as co writer with Bon Iver frontman Justin Vernon of the liner notes for the John Prine tribute album Broken Hearts Dirty Windows Perry also collaborated with Vernon and Flaming Lips lead singer Wayne Coyne on a project that began when Vernon approached Perry and said, Say, you re a nurse The results were bloody, but then that was the point.Of all his experiences, Perry says the single most meaningful thing he has ever done is serving 12 years beside his neighbors on the New Auburn Area Fire Department.Mike says If I had to sum up my career in one word, it would be gratitude I get to write and tell stories all around the country, then come home to be with my family and hang out at the local feed mill complaining about the price of feeder hogs It s a good life and I m lucky to have it.
