Publisher's Summary

The Woman Lit by Fireflies is a rollicking collection of three novellas that spans the odd contours of the American landscape. It introduces Harrison's beloved character Brown Dog, an ex-Bible student with raucously asocial tendencies who rescues the preserved body of an Indian chief from the depths of Lake Superior in a caper that nets a wildly unexpected bounty.Elsewhere, a band of 60s radicals reunite to free an old comrade from a Mexican jail. And a 50-year-old suburban housewife flees quietly from her abusive businessman husband and explores the bittersweet pageant of the preceding years within the sanctuary of an Iowa cornfield.


What the Critics Say

"Exciting and impressive...a talented writer who understands the human heart." (New York Times Book Review)
"Harrison has a narrative voice that fairly defies the reader to ignore it....For Harrison, life is a story, and it's the one that he can tell with the best of them." (Washington Post Book World)
