Truck: A Love Story Michael Perry HarperCollins / 281 pages / $24.95 Author Michael Perry had but two simple goals in winter 2003: "Grow a garden and recapture my youth. That, and get my decrepit 1951 L-120 International pickup truck running in time for deer hunting season in November." The premise of Truck: A Love Story is deceptively simple: the recounting of one year in the middle of one man's life.

FOR MANY OF US, one of life's great pleasures is a weekend trip to the dump. OK, right now, a lot of you guys out there are reading this and nodding and thinking: "You got that right, brother." Because going to the dump is still largely a guy thing. Oh, sure, you see women unloading stuff at the dump all the time. But women aren't in their element when they're at the dump. Women don't look comfortable at the dump. Even if they're wearing the official dump uniform - work boots, jeans, T-shirt, old flannel shirt - everything in their body language screams that they want to get out of there as quickly as possible.

MARYVILLE, Tenn. -- Surrounded by images of small-town America, former Tennessee Gov. Lamar Alexander announced his bid for the 1996 Republican presidential nomination yesterday with a rhetorical blast at Washington's "arrogant empire" and a promise to complete "the people's revolution" against government.Wearing a red flannel shirt and standing outside the county courthouse in his hometown, Mr. Alexander offered up the concept that rolling back the federal government was the central challenge now facing Americans -- the spiritual successor to the long struggle against the "evil empire" in the Soviet Union.

RECENTLY, the fashion section of the Sunday New York Times featured an article on what it deemed to be one of the greatest fashion trends in our society today -- "grunge."From the long, stringy hair and shredded, dirt-crusted jeans of alternative West Coast rock stars, to the purposefully "dirtied-up" models in the windows of Macy's, the tendency toward grunge in stylish dress is showing up everywhere.While this may come as a shock to those of us who are slightly less fashion conscious than big-city thread twisters, it should nonetheless come as a pleasant one.
