"A sensitive, powerful love story about a man on the cutting edge of life." --Richard Brautigan   In Farmer, Jim Harrison 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 tantalizing young student, the other his beautiful childhood friend he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or finally seek the wider, more worldly horizons he has avoided all his life. Farmer is a wondrous blend of insight, storytelling, and the author's uncanny ability to evoke the mysteries and beauties of the natural world.   "A beautiful novel", Farmer serves as the perfect introduction to Harrison's remarkable insight, storytelling, and evocation of the natural world (The Boston Globe).   "A quiet triumph . . . Yes, it is the old story again. Taking it and making it new, as Harrison has done, is a miracle on the order of the loaves and fishes. But then so are all good novels." --The Washington Post… (més)

Injured older Michigan teacher makes out with the ladies, including a seventeen year old.

Did not see that coming.

It's good, of course, anyway. ( )

There is something lyrical about Harrison's writing, perhaps because he is also a poet... while his storytelling is interesting, his writing glides the story along. As with most of his books that I've read, his central character is a male going through various life changes -- a male with sex, hunting, and fishing on his mind. As a farmer, I enjoy his tales. This is a simple story focusing mainly on one year in a man's life when he is facing personal and professional change. A nice read. ( )

Harrison's third novel tells the story of a man needing to make a choice. Joseph lived a familiar life and dreamed dreams never to go and see the ocean. But an unwise affair w a younger woman leads to making a decision. Told in Harrison's crisp yet understanding style full of northern Michigan and its woods and waters. A hard yet sympathetic story teller. ( )

As a long time reader of Jim Harrison, I can say that reading his books is always a pleasure. I still remember seeing him do a reading in San Francisco. He had a bottle of wine on the table as he read from his latest novel. There is just something about the way he can start a thought and have it move into one subject after another and then still come back to the original thought. His main character in this book is complex and I can understand him and the feelings he has. I look forward to reading all the Jim Harrison books that I have not read. Although a short book "Farmer" is written in that narrative style that makes it seem longer. A good slice of life and a helpful insight into lives that are much different from mine. Harrison reminds me always about why I love the joy of a good novel. ( )

Short, bittersweet, and simply superb - I "discovered" Jim Harrison while in college thirty-some years ago when I read of his first novel, Wolf: A False Memoir. When he mentioned Reed City in the first line of that book, I was hooked. I never imagined that the little town where I grew up would ever make the pages of good fiction. I shouldn't have been surprised though. Jim Harrison did some growing up in Reed City too. His dad, Win Harrison, was the county agent here. The Harrisons moved away to the Lansing area around 1949, but Jim still credits Reed City as a formative influence in his memoir, Off to the Side. There have been a lot of Harrison books since Wolf, and I've read most of them, but, in re-reading it recently, Farmer still holds up well after more than 30 years. In fact, I still think it is his best novel. It is so much more than just a love story, although it certainly is that. It is a tale of lust and longing, but also one of regret and redemption. Joseph Lundgren, the title character, is at once complex and simple. He is Everyman. In Wolf, the protagonist looked for a wolf in the wilderness mountains of Upper Michigan in the sixties - a time when wolves were all but gone from the state. That same theme - chasing a ghost animal of an earlier time - shows up again in Farmer, when Joseph tries to get a glimpse of a coyote. What he finally sees is no more than a blur for "a tenth of a second." What the middle-aged teacher/farmer Joseph wants in his ill-advised affair with a beautiful high school student is nearly as impossible to define as that search for the elsusive and all-but-extinct coyote. "I wanted to be carried away," he says, trying to explain things to his twin sister. And, at least for a little while, he succeeded. And, while I know there is no "political correctness" about this thirty year-old novel, any man today who can still be honest about his real feelings and simply say the hell with propriety and political correctness, will understand Joseph and what he did. Harrison puts you inside Joseph's skin. You feel his despair, his regrets, his longing for something more. Farmer may be a very short book, but it is as nearly perfect as a novel can ever hope to be.
