Published by W.W. Norton & Company, The Perfect Vehicle: What it is About Motorcycles is available and admired around the world. Diverse in her pursuits, yet unable to title a book without a colon, Pierson also has two books published on other topics, The Place You Love is Gone: Progress Hits Home, 2007; and Dark Horses Black Beauties: Animals, Women, a Passion, 2001. In these books, respectively, Pierson turns her insightful eye to unveiling the endemic romance of sense-of-place, and the archetypal relationship between women and horses.Yeah, but can she ride? Pierson will be arriving at the event, from her home in New York State, on her very own BMW K75. Stop by the reading or her signing at the Metzeler truck to see if Pierson has tats, if she can do a U-turn in a parking lot, if she can talk Heron heads and Earls forks, and if she’s for real.
