Publisher's Summary

Jim Harrison takes us on a journey of the human heart in three new novellas. Julip follows a bright and resourceful young woman as she tries to spring her brother from a Florida jail after he shot three of her former lovers "below the belt". The Seven-Ounce Man continues the picaresque adventures of Brown Dog, a Michigan scoundrel who loves to eat, drink, and chase women, all while sailing along in the bottom 10 percent. The Beige Dolorosa is the haunting tale of an academic who, recovering from the repercussions of a sexual-harassment scandal, turns to the natural world for solace.


What the Critics Say

"Richly allusive and wickedly funny, Harrison's book offers three delightful studies of unique individuals battling inventively against society's demands for conformity." (Library Journal)
"Pithy and engaging....A peppery mix of redemption and hilarity....Harrison's ability to weave offbeat characters and outrageous circumstances into tight, poetic, and often hilarious fiction is a rare and welcome gift." (Seattle Times)
"Harrison is inherently refreshing....His energy appears unmitigated." (Publishers Weekly)
