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.
"An epic storyteller who deals in great vistas and vast distances."
"When you turn the last page and Swanson's voice stops, you want to flip back and keep listening."
From the Publisher
Annotation Harrison's first novel is a "false memoir" by a latter-day Thoreau, who has gone back to the land in northern Michigan. Carol Swanson is a 33-year-old recluse who has left an unhappy life in New York to return to the rural Midwest of his youth. Prowling the forests for a glimpse of wolves by day, Swanson recalls the aimlessness of his early years and tries to discover some order in the haphazard pattern of his life.
