Synopses & Reviews
The New York Times bestselling author of thirty-nine books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry--including Legends of the Fall, Dalva, and Returning to Earth--Jim Harrison was one of our most beloved and acclaimed writers, adored by both readers and critics. In Farmer, he tells the story of Joseph, a forty-three-year-old farmer-schoolteacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads. Forced to choose between two lovers--one a younger woman, the other his beautiful childhood friend--he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or finally seek the wider, more broader horizons he has avoided all his life. Returning Harrison fans will be ecstatic to find this in print once again, and for new readers, this work serves as the perfect introduction to Harrison's remarkable insight, storytelling, and evocation of the natural world.
