Overview

In three novellas, Jim Harrison takes us on an American journey as he leads us through the wondrous landscape of the human heart. "Julip" follows a bright and resourceful young woman as she tries to spring her brother from a Florida jail—he shot three of her former lovers "below the belt." "The Seven-Ounce Man" continues the picaresque adventures of Brown Dog, a Michigan scoundrel who loves to eat, drink, and chase women, all while sailing along in the bottom 10 percent. "The Beige Dolorosa" is the haunting tale of an academic who, recovering from the repercussions of a sexual harassment scandal, turns to the natural world for solace. In each of these stories, the irresistible pull of nature becomes a magnificent backdrop for exploring the toughest questions about life and love.

A major new collection of stories by the author of Legends of the Fall and Dalva. The title novella is the story of a bright and resourceful young woman of our times and the mixed horror and pleasure of much older lovers.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Harrison's latest effort is a collection of three novellas: the title story, about a young woman's attempt to free her brother from jail; the adventures of a womanizing drunkard; and a sexual harassment victim who finds solitude in nature. (May)
Library Journal
The protagonists in this collection of three novellas are spunky aberrants who remain appealing despite their sometimes reprehensible behavior. Julip, whose name suggests the blending of a spring flower with an alcoholic drink, is a fascinating mixture of waiflike innocence and jaded sexuality. Brown Dog, seen earlier in The Woman Lit by Fireflies ( LJ 6/1/90) and revived now in "The Seven Ounce Man,'' was born "not to cooperate with the world,'' and lurches unsteadily from barroom brawls to protests against the desecration of Indian burial grounds. In "The Beige Dolorosa'' a politically incorrect college professor attacks an "ecocircus'' mime but seeks personal salvation by renaming the birds of America. Richly allusive and wickedly funny, Harrison's book offers three delightful studies of unique individuals battling inventively against society's demands for conformity.-- Albert E. Wilhelm, Tennessee Technological Univ., Cookeville
