Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Jim Harrison's sixth book of fiction ought to set the record pretty straight and move us away from accustomed presentations of the author: where the 'macho' image dominated the early reviews, readers of Sundog will just have to look for something else or feel they are missing quite a few things. Furthermore, whoever thought Harrison was one of the examples of this country's fiction merely returning to a time-honored tradition of realism will have something else to think about: here Harrison's technique shows him in full control of diverse narrative voices and, for not being made out of blatantly experimental innovations, gives him the tool necessary for the compassionate stance and ironic distinctness of his novel. Humor, long absent from the early novels is here everywhere, in all three narrative voices, quite inconspicuous and very efficient." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)

Synopsis:

Robert Corvus Strang and two total strangers have retreated to this isolated land of Michigan's Upper Peninsula, where Strang launches into the story of his monumental life. In a novel that stretches from Michigan to Africa to the Amazon, he leads his listeners to a and stunning defiance of life's frailty.
