Coop: A Year of Poultry,. has been added to your Cart. Last seen sleeping off his wedding night in the back of a 1951 International Harvester pickup, Michael Perry is now living in a rickety Wisconsin farmhouse.
Coop: A Year of Poultry,. Faced with thirty-seven acres of fallen fences and overgrown fields, and informed by his pregnant wife that she intends to deliver their baby at home, Perry plumbs his unorthodox childhood-his city-bred parents took in more than a hundred foster children while running a ramshackle dairy farm-for clues to how to proceed as a farmer, a husband, and a father.
But his progressive story throughout that book remained for me quite interesting. And in Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs, and Parenting he manages again to record a life that novels are made of. He could not have made this story up. The tragedies that occur are monumental in his retelling of them.

Michael Perry has knocked the bar up another notch with Coop. His last book Truck (A Love Story) was fantastic, but Coop eclipses Truck with more heart felt moments, and laugh out loud humor. Rarely have I found an author who writes with such verve that paragraphs about pig pen building, and chicken coop construction become literature. With humor and grace, Perry takes the reader along for a year of great changes, some positive and some devastating (I will spare the details so as not to ruin the reading experience), showing the reader that there is profundity and beauty in even the most mundane experiences of daily life.
