In three novellas, Jim Harrison takes us on an American journey as he leads us through the wondrous landscape of the human heart. In this "richly allusive and wickedly funny" collection, Jim Harrison offers "three delightful studies of unique individuals battling inventively against society's demands for conformity" (Library Journal). 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.
