Jim Harrison is one of America s most beloved and critically-acclaimed authorson a par with American literary greats like Richard Ford, Anne Tyler, Robert Stone, Russell Banks, and Ann Beattie. His latest collection of novellas, "The River Swimmer," is 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 Clivea failed artist, divorced and grappling with the vagaries of his declining yearsreluctantly returns to his family s Michigan farmhouse to visit his aging mother. The return to familiar territory triggers a jolt of renewalof 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. "The River Swimmer" is a striking portrait of two richly-drawn, profoundly human characters, and an exceptional reminder of why Jim Harrison is one of the most cherished and important writers at work today."
