Author Info
Jim Harrison
Jim Harrison was born in Michigan to parents who introduced him to the joys of reading when he was very young. When he was 7, he was blinded in one eye in a childhood accident, and he says he "turned for solace" to the natural landscape and to animals. He earned two degrees from the Michigan State University, and published his first book of poetry, "Plain Song", in 1965, while he was still in graduate school. He began writing poetry after another accident left him bedridden. He has also written short stories, screenplays, and non-fiction articles.
"A mint of down-home goodness... Genuine, full-throttle fun coasting over ever-threatening undercurrents of pathos and hearbreak."
"What makes these novellas work is the authority of Mr. Harrison voice."
From the Publisher
Annotation Three comic novellas from the celebrated novelist and satirist. The title story is an account of the efforts of Julip, a young girl with three elderly lovers, to save her older brother Bobby from committal to a lunatic asylum. "The Seven Ounce Man" describes the quest of Brown Dog to save from development a Native American burial ground in which his ancestors are interred. In "The Beige Dolorosa," Phillip Caulfield, a middle-aged English professor suffering the mandatory identity crisis, moves to a ranch in Arizona and tries to become a cowboy.
