[Perry’s] essays inspire a lot of collective nodding – like the first time he saw the Packers on a flat-screen – and also many laughs. You can’t help but chuckle when he describes a yoga studio that caters to farmers or misses a deer while hunting because he’s reading Poets & Writers. “Writing is a privilege,” Perry says, and he uses his column “as a mirror to see how I’m measuring up.” Our only grievance: These two-page stories will leave you wanting more. (Kristine Hansen, Milwaukee Magazine, Oct. 19, 2016)
“The pieces chosen for his new essay collection, Roughneck Grace: Farmer Yoga, Creeping Codgerism, Apple Golf and Other Brief Essays from On and Off the Back Forty (Wisconsin Historical Society Press), serve as a compelling reminder of Perry’s subtle wit, charm and predilection for nature, family and friends. That may sound a bit sappy, but that’s okay. In a world in which 140 characters count as “writing,” Perry’s thoughtful and sensitive prose provides the authentic perspective of a 50-something man with one steel-toed boot planted firmly in nostalgia and the other in an ever-changing present. (Michael Popke, Isthmus, Oct. 6, 2016)
