  1. Bottom line is, I m the kind of guy who s happy to attend the opera, but I should like to be allowed to wear steel toed boots with my evening suit Michael Perry, From the Top Garrison Keillor makes me proud of my Minnesota roots, but my favorite home spun Midwestern storyteller is across the border Michael Perry has written a few of my faves, including Truck A Love Story and Population 485 Chicken farmer, first responder, author, and humorist, his essays strike close to home and pack laughs per [...]


  2. Just wow Sure, some of these short essays riff on topics Perry has covered elsewhere, but they re still funny and or poignant every time And they are short if you have trouble with shorts, think of them as anecdotes or maybe simply reflections.


  3. If this author were single, and I was single, I d probably stalk him Fell in love with Michael Perry all over again Will be buying extra copies of this to gift.


  4. From The Top By Michael PerryI recently had the pleasure of hearing Mike speak at the Mable Tainter Center for the Arts in Menomonie and was so enthralled by his performance that I couldn t wait to read this Part of the ticket price included a copy of his collection, From The Top It s an assortment of short essays that he mostly pre recorded at his farm in Fall Creek, which were later played during intermission at the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua One of the great freedoms of the Tent Show Ra [...]


  5. From The Top is a tidy collection of tales and monologues that remind us its ok to slow down a bit and enjoy the life going on around us Maybe even advisable to do so There is a little something for everyone here for my part I have a little warmer spot for my lovely wife, and for her damned chickens


  6. Michael Perry s From the Top Brief Transmissions from Tent Show Radio we get a whimsical look into the life of a multifaceted personality whose many talents include being an emcee, author, EMT registered nurse, father, husband and farmer Written as a collection of tales and monologues which were played at the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua Tent Michael explores a gambit of human emotions in a variety of topics from fatherhood, chickens and dumpster therapy to wedding rings and a dose of the st [...]


  7. Another 5 star book for me This collection will make you laugh out loud his humor is usually of the self deprecating variety, never the let s make fun of someone else variety And without preaching, Perry s words will probably make you want to do a little naval gazing Perry s work always packs a positive punch, and this collection offers a shining example Micheal Perry s Brief transmissions is wonderful.


  8. I won a copy of From the Top Brief Transmissions from Tent Show Radio from a firstreads giveaway, and I think I knew what to expect from this book when I saw the picture of the author on the back Michael Perry is wearing a t shirt and knit cap while holding a pair of fancy chickens He s a farmer, an emcee, a comedian, and an author This book is a collection of his monologues from the Tent Radio Show, a program syndicated on NPR.Michael Perry s monologues are folksy, entertaining, and short, on a [...]


  9. 3.5 stars Michael Perry steps behind the microphone and fills the empty space with his words of wisdom during intermission at the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua shows in Bayfield, Wisconsin These monologues must be brief enough to fit the six minute sandwich between two thick slices of music Though he has written down these cute, introspective, wise, witty and not so witty stories I think they would ve made a greater impact in audio version or the real thing.I personally have seen some perform [...]


  10. This is a delightful compilation of radio talks by Michael Perry, the host of Tent Show Radio in northern Wisconsin The talks are very short, about two or three pages each and are humorous looks at life in rural America But don t be fooled These are very 21st Century observations of what it s like to be a father, a husband, a farmer, a shopper, a fixer of things gone wrong, and much Whether you live in the country or the city, you ll relate to these stories.


  11. Michael Perry is always a quick and enjoyable read This was fun because it was really just short musings It was perfect for a long train ride where I often stopped and started It also makes me quietly homesick for Wisconsin and the US midwest, but in a beautiful and nostalgic way that only Michael Perry and Garrison Keillor can elicit.


  12. After vacationing several times in the Bayfield, WI area, and going to a show once at the Big Top Chautauqua, I thought it would be fun to read this book I m not sure it would have been as much fun without my having been there I read it on the Kindle on my phone, and the short, folksy essay format made it great for reading whenever I had a few spare minutes waiting somewhere.


  13. A collection of short stories I ve read and enjoyed all of Perry s books This one was a little repetitious, but it was a fast read I love Big Top Chattauaua and the stories ideas generated for there.


  14. Perhaps not as enjoyable as Population 485 or Truck, it is still good Short very short about 2 pages each essays on various topics Best read a small bite at a time One essay here or there Not meant for one gulp reading.


  15. Michael Perry s brief humorous essays never fail to please, especially for readers like myself who enjoy stories from the rural Midwest.Please note that I do not use the star rating system, so this review should not be interpreted as a zero.





  16. I really enjoyed this book I enjoy Mr Perry s take a music and his introspective description of what it is like to be a man, in America, in Wisconsin, and from a small farm It was well written.


  17. More lovely stories about life s joys challenges from MPThe only reason this is a 4 is some are repeats of other books.




  18. I am a very biased reader of anything by Michael Perry He is my favorite author of all time I just love the guy.
