His latest collection of novellas is Jim Harrison at his most memorable. In The Land of Unlikeness, a sixty-year-old divorced art history academic reluctantly returns to his family's Michigan farmhouse to visit his aging mother. Water Baby ventures into the magical as an Upper Peninsula farm boy, drawn to the water as an escape, sees otherworldly creatures there. The River Swimmer is a striking portrait of two richly-drawn, profoundly human characters. (Bestseller).

"This stellar collection of novellas, written by one of the most beloved writers in America, provides profound insight into the human condition. A 60-year-old art history academic embarks on an unexpected journey of rediscovery; a dog catcher goes on the road looking for love, and a young Midwestern farm boy has a love of water which leads to unforeseen consequences."
