Michael Perry, The Jesus Cow
Secret Garden Books, Saturday, May 30 at 2pm
With his eye (and ear) for the comical elements of contemporary rural life, New York Times-bestselling author Michael Perry has built a loyal audience with his popular memoirs Visiting Tom and Population 485. Now, for the first time, he turns to fiction with The Jesus Cow an affectionately skewed and big-hearted depiction of one miraculous bovine and the chaos it unleashes. “A wildly comic and deeply felt examination of faith, combining politics, scandal, farming, love, environmentalism and rural philosophy,” says Julie Schumacher, author of Dear Committee Member.

The uneventful world of Harley Jackson, low-key Wisconsin farmer, is about to change forever:

“On Christmas Eve itself, the bachelor Harley Jackson stepped into his barn and beheld there illuminated in the straw a smallish newborn bull calf upon whose flank was borne the very image of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. “Well,” said Harley, “that’s trouble.”

Harley attempts to suppress the “miracle,” fails spectacularly, and The Jesus Cow goes viral. His peaceful, hometown is quickly overrun with pilgrims, grifters and clamoring media. Then a Hollywood agent jets in with plans to turn Harley’s farm into a neon-lit cheesehead version of Lourdes. The free-for-all is further complicated by Harley’s blooming affair with a truck-driving woman he met at the gas station—she joins a parade of unforgettable characters, from a lonely land developer in a star-spangled Hummer to a devout car-crushing Catholic widow and Harley’s cat-obsessed best friend Billy, who tries to pass off country music lyrics as original philosophy.

Michael Perry is a radio host, songwriter, and the New York Times bestselling author of several nonfiction books. Although he performs widely as a humorist, the stylistic elements of Perry’s writing have led to several music-based collaborations, most recently with Justin Vernon of the band Bon Iver and Aaron Dessner of The National. A registered nurse by training, Perry lives in northern Wisconsin with his family, where he volunteers with the local rescue service. He can be found online at www.sneezingcow.com.

The Jesus Cow starts with salt of the earth characters, adds a little spice, and ends up being a funny, beefy, tasty stew with a lot of heart,” says Christopher Moore, author of Lamb, A Dirty Job, and Secondhand Souls. “When Michael Perry is clicking, he's pure joy to read, and in The Jesus Cow, he's clicking a lot.” “A loveable, kind-hearted, and hilarious romp,” seconds Nickolas Butler, author of Shotgun Lovesongs. “Michael Perry has done it again – written another winning book that will satisfy his legions of already devout fans, and bring many more new devotees into the fold. Perry is a small-town American treasure.”

History Redux Book Group
This is a book discussion group that does not require you to have read the book. Most of our time is spent discussing what we learned from the book, adding and correcting what others have said.

Some of these books are weighty, and this is our opportunity to learn and fix the material in our head by going over it with someone else.

We also enjoy a good discussion, and the discussions are not just data-dumps. If you want to discuss how it fits into other material you've been studying, all the better!

This month's book is by Michael Tsarion Atlantis: Alien Visitation and Genetic Manipulation. Our copies are checked out, and used copies are expensive to buy, but Kindle versions are available on his website (www.michaeltsarion.com) and on Amazon (www.Amazon.com).

The History Redux group focuses on books that have an unconventional look at how the human race got to where it is now, looking at the researchers and authors who have an approach not approved by current academicians. The books we have already read include The Book of the Hopi, by Frank Waters, Uriel's Machine by Christopher Knight, Our Ancestors Came from Outer Space by Maurice Chatelain,Edgar Cayce on Atlantis, and The Wars of God and Men by Zecharia Sitchin.
