Read full description of the books The Summer He Didn't Die:Celebrated author Jim Harrison, whose robust, tender, and deeply felt books have made their mark on the American literary landscape, here delivers a collection of three novellas infused with all the wisdom and generous spirit that have made him a master writer. In the title novella, "The Summer He Didn't Die," Brown Dog, a hapless Michigan Indian, is trying to parent his two stepchildren on meager resources; it helps that his charms are irresistible to the new dentist in town. "Republican Wives" is a riotous satire on the sexual neuroses of the political right and the irrational nature of love--which, when thwarted, can easily turn into an urge to murder. "Tracking" gives the author's life story as a tale of the places that have marked it. With wit as sharp as ever and prose as lush as any Harrison has yet written, The Summer He Didn't Die is a joyful ode to our journey on this earth.
