Perry's Visiting Tom Comes to Stay in Paperback

Thom Fountain

I think it’s fair to say Fall Creek author Michael Perry’s newest book Visiting Tom was a huge success. The book – which details the life and stories of Tom Hartwig, a local legend who’s known for his team of oxen and has a particular disdain for the highway that was forced through his property – landed Perry on the New York Times Best Seller List and received critical acclaim. Well, now Visiting Tom is available in paperback in a new edition. With the paperback release, Perry – who is known as much for his storytelling as his writing – is hitting the Midwestern road for a book tour throughout the late summer and into fall. You can check out his tour schedule at and pick up the paperback of Visiting Tom at a number of local booksellers and online.
