Brown Dog

Feast. If you are familiar with the character Brown Dog from Jim Harrison’s many novellas to feature him, treat yourself to all those stories and a new one assembled in one collection titled appropriately, Brown Dog. If you’re new to B.D. or to Harrison, you’re in for a special treat if you read this book. Brown Dog tries to lead a simple life on Michigan’s Upper Peninsula until it inevitably gets complicated. He does odd jobs, fishes and hunts (sometimes in season), and never says no to an opportunity for sex or alcohol. Thanks to Harrison’s fine writing, this Everyman is a complex and interesting character through whom readers can see a wide range of human behavior. I felt stuffed and satisfied after feasting on this collection, even after reading some of the stories that I’ve read more than once before.
