Welcome to Michael Perry’s Voice Mail, episode 171. This one’s available to free and paid subscribers alike. Click the player above to listen.
In this episode I recount how my dear late friend Billy yanked my chain once when it needed yanking (as one’s best friends will), and why that incident wound up in my book about the French philosopher Montaigne. This week’s marginalia is drawn from Mark Twain, and I also reference Apollo and Prince.
Depending on when you receive this, the concert I mention may or may not already be over (it’s happening Sunday, August 6 at 7:30 pm Central), but just in case, here’s a link to the event.
And here’s a link to the ticketed livestream. You can watch from home.
You can find Montaigne in Barn Boots in hardcover, paperback, audiobook (CD and digital), and Kindle and other ebook versions and all of Mike’s other hardcovers, paperbacks, and audiobooks here at the Sneezing Cow store.
Thank you for listening. It’s nice to visit.
See y’down the road,
