‘Truck’ Is Back On The Road!

Calling all Gearheads: John Jerome’s Truck is back in stock! Truck: On Rebuilding a Worn-Out Pickup and Other Post-Technological Adventures is a New England classic, a meditation on machines, metaphysics, and the moral universe from one man’s quest to restore a 1950 Dodge pickup.

“Know thy gadgets,” Jerome writes. “First step in restoring some kind of wholeness to one’s life.” Despite gouged knuckles, a frigid New Hampshire winter, and a close call when the truck rolls off its jacks, he perseveres. While Jerome gains a truck that runs — sometimes — we gain new insight into the technology that continues to encroach upon our lives.

Buckle your seatbelts and start your engines, because Truck is back on the road!
