Synopsis: Jim Harrison is one of our finest writers, whose robust, tender, and deeply felt fictions-like Dalva, Legends of the Fall, The Road Home, and his most recent novel, the widely acclaimed True North-have made their mark on the contemporary American literary landscape. Now he delivers a collection of three novellas infused with all the wisdom and generous spirit that have made him one of our masters. In the title novella, "The Summer He Didn't Die," Brown Dog, a hapless Michigan Indian loved by Harrison's readers, is trying to parent his two stepchildren and take care of his family's health on meager resources. "Republican Wives" is a riotous satire on the sexual neuroses of the right, the mystery of why any person desires another, and the irrational power of love that, when thwarted, can turn so easily into an urge to murder. "Where Are We?" mines Harrison's private religion of the sensuous and sensual as integral to the transcendent joy of living. The Summer He Didn't Die displays wit as sharp and prose as lush as any Harrison has yet written. It is a resonant, hilarious, and joyful ode to our journey on this earth.
