Jim Harrison is an American master, and The Beast God Forgot to Invent is a book that The New York Times Book Review called "a big, wet, sloppy kiss that Harrison continues to plant on the face of life itself".These are stories of culture and wildness, of men and beasts and where they overlap. A wealthy man retired to the Michigan woods narrates the tale of a younger man decivilized by brain damage. A Michigan Indian wanders Los Angeles, hobnobbing with starlets and screenwriters while he tracks an ersatz Native-American activist who stole his bearskin. An aging "alpha canine", the author of three dozen throwaway biographies, eats dinner with the ex-wife of his overheated youth, and must confront the man he used to be. As The Plain Dealer (Cleveland) put it, "The Beast God Forgot to Invent is a proud addition to the Harrison oeuvre. It is exhilarating to watch a master at work".… (més)

I know I've read this but don't seem to remember anything about it, so I'll have to read it again.

This is a collection of three superb stories.....Harrison has such an incredible command of language. He says so much in a simple sentence....paragraphs are wonders of thought. I love the writers style...and I plan to read his works. I am recommending this book to all my avid reader friends. Jim Harrison is in the league of John Irving.....great American literature. ( )

Good first sentence: "The danger of civilization, of course, is that you will piss away your life on nonsense." The first three words are italicized for unclear reasons; I mean, I could understand emphasizing "The" or "danger" or even "The danger" but why "of?" Maybe it is just a typo.

An uneven trio of novellas from an author proclaimed as an American master in the jacket blurbs. I can't agree, after this book, although I did quite like the middle story, about a an itinerant Indian from Michigan who travels to the mythical land of Los Angeles in search of his stolen bearskin. An intriguing and often clever sendup of Hollywood as seen through the eyes of a true outsider. The other two are less engaging, and often annoying. In both cases, the main character is an older man of letters, self-involved, whiny and noncaring about the needs and feelings of others. Sort of reminds me of John Updyke's Becht character, another one I have no liking for, and no desire to read further about. Not badly written, just no characters who redeem the effort of reading about them. ( )

Three novella's, The Beast God Forgot to Invent, Westward Ho, and I Forgot to Go to Spain are interesting, entertaining and well written. They show, once again, Harrison's penchant for creating characters that are out of the main stream and often have no regard for money, whether overly rich or overly poor. ( )
