Farmer: A Novel.
by Harrison, Jim.

Publisher Information:
Viking, New York: 1976.

A Fine tight copy in a Fine bright price-clipped dust jacket. The protagonist of this novel is Joseph a 43 year-old farmer-teacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads. Forced to choose between two lovers - one a tantalizing young student, the other his childhood friend, he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or seek employment in the outside world. What holds Joseph together is Michigan, a crusty doctor-hunting partner and his own sense of man's history. There is no stability in emotions, only needs. Continuity rises from habit, hunting game with his friend, satisfying the demands of animals and land. Harrison gives us a man, an environment, an attitude. The man is a wanter, usually fondling a dream, often on the edge of failure, endowed with the ability to survive. The environment is Michigan bursting. The attitude is stoic.
