Debbie: And of course, we want to know all about your book!
John: There's another John Perry who's funnier, thinks faster and is more creative than me. I never know when he'll turn up (and I suppose it's possible it isn't really him at all, but some other tricky person like Mike or Millicent or somebody). Anyway, whoever it is showed up one morning while I was still asleep and told me a story that made me laugh until I woke up. That story is The Book That Eats People, more or less. And it's irresponsible, irredeemable, irreverent, unrepentant, toothy and peevish. The trouble with that other John is he doesn't stick around to answer questions, so I had to write The Book That Eats People using just what I remembered. I hope I got it right because I wouldn't want the other John to be upset with me.
Debbie: Other books and projects you (and the other John) have on the horizon?
Debbie: Any upcoming appearances?
Debbie: Favorite Michigan event or happening?
Rich Cox, my friend who owns Orion Automotive Services in Ann Arbor, has a head full of stories and insight everybody should hear some day.
John: Look, lots of Michigarblers are going to make up stories about Michigan to try to scare you away. Don't listen to anybody who says the ground in Michigan is randomly electrified, or to the guys on Fox who dreamed up that wild story about "bands of frantic saxophonists" who deafen tourists. None of that nonsense is true.
