“Revenge is a dish better served cold.”
(Old Sicilian adage)

3 stories in this book. The first one, "Revenge" is pretty good and pretty much lives up to its title! It does get a bit sideways when the movie star is involved, but other than that, it's a tale of revenge, which is definitely my cup of tea!
The second one is titled "The Man Who Gave Up His Name" which is a story that I almost gave up reading! Even as I type this, I am unclear what the heck it was about.
The title story was well written, but it meandered quite a bit. And I was finding myself confused by which charter was which, with so many of them having numbers in their names. However, it was super cool to see that "Tomales Bay near Point Reyes" was referenced toward the end of the story, as I live near there, and two weekends ago, I crossed the bay on a kayak with my daughter's Scouts BSA troop! Unfortunately, no sign of Tristan...… (més)

I love Jim Harrison. I hated this book. A long apparent apologia for alcoholism and old men having sex with young women (and girls), the protagonist’s excuses and mild self-condemnation prevented neither his doing such things repeatedly nor a sense of distaste in the reader. I really looked forward to this book. A couple chapters in, I really looked forward to it being over.
Never figured a Jim Harrison book would be a waste of time.

The Ancient Minstrel - aging writer eats and drinks, obsesses on women. Well trod ground.

Eggs - Excellent, worth the volume. A woman's life, and chickens.

Howling Buddha - similar to Minstrel, but closes with an unexpected punch.

I had, before this collection of essays, not read much Jim Harrison. I had an image of him as a cruder Hemingway but this book changed that perception radically, and I now intend to work through his novels and explore his poetry. He's writing about more than "Yo-Ho" masculinity and he is often profound.
