The author of Population: 485 returns, delivering a truckload of humor, heart, and . . . gardening tips? Think Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, complete with stock cars, sexy vegetables, and a laugh track. "All I wanted to do was fix my old pickup truck," says Michael Perry. "That, and plant my garden. Then I met this woman. . . ." Truck: A Love Story recounts a year in which Perry struggles to grow his own food ("Seed catalogs are responsible for more unfulfilled fantasies than Enron and Penthouse combined"), live peaceably with his neighbors (one test-fires his black powder rifle in the alley; another's best Sunday shirt reads 100 PERCENT WHUP-ASS), and sort out his love life. But along the way, he sets his hair on fire, is attacked by wild turkeys, takes a date to the fire department chicken dinner, and proposes marriage to a woman in New Orleans. As with Population: 485, much of the spirit of Truck: A Love Story may be found in the characters Perry meets: a one-eyed land surveyor, a paraplegic biker who rigs a sidecar so that his quadriplegic pal can ride along, a bartender who refuses to sell light beer, an enchanting woman who never existed, and half the staff of National Public Radio. By turns hilarious and heartfelt, a tale that begins on a pile of sheep manure, detours to the Whitney Museum of American Art, and returns to the deer-hunting swamps of northern Wisconsin, Truck: A Love Story becomes a testament to the surprising and unintended consequences of love. 1006

“A touching and very funny account. . . . Thoroughly engaging.”—New York Times Hilarious and heartfelt, Truck: A Love Story is the tale of a man struggling to grow his own garden, fix his old pickup, and resurrect a love life permanently impaired by Neil Diamond. In the process, he sets his hair on fire, is attacked by wild turkeys, and proposes marriage to a woman in New Orleans. The result is a surprisingly tender testament to love. “Part Bill Bryson, part Anne Lamott, with a skim of Larry the Cable Guy and Walt Whitman creeping around the edges.”—Lincoln Journal Star “Perry takes each moment, peeling it, seasoning it with rich language, and then serving it to us piping hot and fresh.”—Chicago Tribune

This story, A True Love Story, was first published in a local magazine in Afghanistan in ten parts during ten weeks time, and more than 1.4 million readers graded it 9 out of 10 stars. Voice of Women Organization (VWO) in Afghanistan has appreciated my story. And it has been a very popular story in Afghanistan, and I won four different awards from different human rights and womens organizations for this book. This book is based on a true story, and it is about an Afghani boy and a Pakistani girl who fell in love, and how their love later became a curse for them. In this book I wanted to put some light on the life of people who live in Asian and third world countries where people, especially women, have no rights at all and everything is decided by their male family members. This is a very gripping, catching, and moving story based on facts, and I am sure once you start reading, you cannot stop until you finish the book.

Sophie Writes a Love Story is the second in a series of books created in the memory of my mother and grandmother. My grandmother was given at her bridal shower in 1916 a set of five prints by C. Clyde Squires, a noted pulp artist. These prints depict five stages of love. My mother inherited this set of five prints from my grandmother, and always kept the frame in a prominent place in her home. The first book in the series is an expression of mother love, Annie's Love. This second book is taken from the picture of puppy love. Sophie Lincoln recently lost her husband, Carl, to a long-term illness, and her children have encouraged her to move to a small house. As she goes through boxes of papers and photos in the attic, she runs across a box containing a ring woven of twine, and a chain. These were a gift to her in her youth by a special boy named Donnie. Sophie's memories lead her back to her writing to tell a story of adventure with Sophie Writes a Love Story. She begins with excerpts from old journals she kept as a child with references to Donnie and the hideout in the timber, and she weaves the magic of story-telling into the entries she finds. Don Ribold is retired and alone and has become depressed with life in general. A friend convinces him to take up a hobby of painting, long forgotten, and makes an introduction to an art teacher who helps him get back into his work. Sophie and Don's independence and individual pursuits of the arts will lead them to each other, and to a chance for love the second time around.

Janesville, Wisconsin (cold in the sense that there is no God)1994 The best thing that's ever happened to Craig is also the worst: Amy. Amy and Craig never should've gotten together. Craig is an awkward Dungeons & Dragons-playing geek, and Amy is the beautiful, fiercely intelligent student-body president of their high school. Yet somehow they did until Amy dumped him. Then got back together with him. Then dumped him again. Then got back together with him again. Over and over and over. Unfolding during their senior year, Amy and Craig's exhilarating, tumultuous relationship is a kaleidoscope of joy, pain, and laughter as an uncertain future-and adult responsibility-loom on the horizon. Craig fights for his dream of escaping Janesville and finding his place at a quirky college, while Amy's quest to uncover her true self sometimes involves being Craig's girlfriend and sometimes doesn't. Seven heartbreaks. Seven joys. Told nonsequentially, acclaimed playwright Don Zolidis's debut novel is a brutally funny, bittersweet taste of the utterly unique and universal experience of first love.

"After long talks and years to ponder, my siblings and I wouldn't change how we grew up. Not even if a time machine were invented and we could all go back to that fateful day we sat around the table and our folks asked us one by one if Dad could quit his job and work on Truck of Love full-time. Well, perhaps knowing the full extent of sacrifice we were agreeing to would have made us pause. Maybe we'd opt for a simpler, normal life: video games, soccer leagues, and the occasional European vacation." - Andy Fullerton. Saying yes to that nagging voice that would not relent has led us into a life we never imagined. The story of Truck of Love involves hundreds of people. What started as a truck load of food and clothing delivered to the poor has morphed into a lifestyle that has enriched us in ways we never imagined. We have found friendship in the Tijuana garbage dump, on the streets of San Jose, California, and on the Tohono O'odham Reservation in Arizona. We have discovered people in each place whose only desire is to provide a good life for their families.

Haunted by Elissar's death, he despairs of never finding love or friendship as time grinds civilizations into dust. For who would love Death?

"It's a doozie. Set in a science fictional universe where climate change is fixed but people get killed via teleportation, a young woman named Anna Huff has to navigate her adolescence and a murder mystery. It has a little bit of all the genres you love in combinations you've never imagined, and it's easily the funniest thing we've read this year so far." — GQ "Drew Magary's 'first posthumous novel' is so good. It's about big tech, weird futures, growing up, and, intriguingly for us, the absurdity of on-demand global travel." — Roads And Kingdoms When the corporate monolith PortSys brought porting to the masses, CEO Emilia Kirsch and her son Jason accomplished what every other startup company had failed to deliver. They really did change the world. They reversed climate change. They created a multitrillion dollar industry out of thin air, curing economic woes across the globe. They made it so that anyone could be anywhere simply by touching a screen… …including the man who murdered Sarah Huff. Now Sarah’s 17-year-old sister, Anna, is determined to hunt the bastard down. But there are a few problems. She doesn’t know who the killer is, or where in the world he may be at any given moment. Also, she’s stuck at prestigious Druskin Academy, where PortPhones are banned and any student who attempts to port off campus is immediately expelled. It gets stickier. Anna’s also fallen in love with her dazzling new roommate, who just so happens to be Emilia Kirsch’s daughter, Lara. The dean of students wants Anna dead, perhaps literally. And she has only two friends to confide in: one a reckless alcoholic and the other a bizarre fussbudget. Oh, and now she also needs to find Lara, who has mysteriously disappeared from campus. From the author of The Postmortal and The Hike comes his most deliriously entertaining novel yet. Point B is the story of one clever and occasionally determined young woman seeking both love and vengeance, but hardly ready for those two missions to intersect. It takes you to Vietnam, Hollywood, Singapore, Tokyo, inland Mexico, Oxford, the Maldives, Cuba, the coast of Northeast Australia, and ALL points beyond. You will find yourself plunged into a borderless, chaotic, oddly miraculous world that is ruled by a single bloodless corporation, and by a family determined to keep it that way. But PortSys never expected Anna Huff, and Anna Huff never expected love to make her this daring.
