Critical Praise

“Of the recent books extolling and commending French essayist Michel de Montaigne, Michael Perry’s new one might be the Montaignest.” - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Readers will laugh out loud frequently while taking in this very funny memoir, as this reviewer did, yet it’s a profound laughter, the kind that gets you thinking…. One couldn’t hope for a better introduction to the work of Perry or Montaigne.” - Library Journal, starred review

“Perry’s poignant, balanced, achingly funny prose is more than an ode to or critique of Michel De Montaigne. Instead, Perry uses the original essays to better understand his own life and bring a bit more humanity to an increasingly divisive world.” - Los Angeles Review of Books

“Perry’s refreshing candor, the essence of the personal essay, serves him well…. ‘You read Montaigne, you feel like you have a friend,’ writes the author, and so readers are likely to feel about Perry.” - Kirkus
