Staff Reviews


I will read anything that Jim Harrison writes. Countless others have told me the same thing, and yet he still feels largely undiscovered. This slim volume of two novellas is a perfect plane ride’s entertainment that I hope will bring many into the ranks of initiated fans. Harrison’s writing is full of the messy contradictions of life. It is raunchy, uninhibited, and exquisitely sensitive. Nature and humanity, youth and age, love and appetite and their inextricable tensions are both mundane and transporting. Harrison is an American classic who deserves his place alongside Hemingway and Faulkner.
