The Jesus CowThe Jesus Cow by Michael Perry

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I am a big fan of Michael Perry's previous books, but his first novel is a bit clunky and has some strange pacing. The book is at its best when it explores small-town life (Perry's familiar subject) and finds the gentle humor in its characters and the idiosyncrasies of rural life. There is some lovely writing in it, and Perry's writing is always joyful and fun even as the plot flails around.

[I received an advanced copy of this novel. It will be published May 19, 2015.]
