Summary
This collection of novellas is Jim Harrison at his most memorable--a brilliant rendering of two men striving to find their way in the world, written with freshness, abundant wit, and profound humanity. In The Land of Unlikeness, sixty-year-old art history academic Clive--a failed artist, divorced and grappling with the vagaries of his declining years--reluctantly returns to his family's Michigan farmhouse to visit his aging mother. The return to familiar territory triggers a jolt of renewal--of ardor for his high school love, of his relationship with his estranged daughter, and of his own lost love of painting. In Water Baby, Harrison ventures into the magical as an Upper Peninsula farm boy is irresistibly drawn to the water as an escape and sees otherworldly creatures there. Faced with the injustice and pressure of coming of age, he takes to the river and follows its siren song all the way across Lake Michigan
