Description

New York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison is one of America's most beloved writers, and of all his creations, Brown Dog—a bawdy, reckless, down-on-his-luck Michigan Indian—has earned cult status with readers in the more than two decades since his first appearance. For the first time, Brown Dog gathers all the Brown Dog novellas, including one never before published, into one volume—the ideal introduction (or reintroduction) to Harrison's irresistible Everyman.

In these novellas, BD rescues the preserved body of an Indian from Lake Superior's cold waters; overindulges in food, drink, and women while just scraping by in Michigan's Upper Peninsula; wanders Los Angeles in search of an ersatz Native activist who stole his bearskin; adopts two Native children; and flees the authorities then returns across the Canadian border aboard an Indian rock band's tour bus. The collection culminates with "He Dog," never before published, which finds BD marginally employed and still looking for love (or sometimes just a few beers and a roll in the hay) as he goes on a road trip from Michigan to Montana and back, arriving home to the prospect of family stability, and, perhaps, a chance at redemption.

Brown Dog underscores Harrison's place as one of America's most irrepressible writers and one of the finest practitioners of the novella form.

      • content: Jim Harrison's Brown Dog character has been a favorite of readers for more than two decades. Here, five of these novellas are brought together for the first time. Narrators Bronson Pinchot, Ray Porter, and Lloyd James evoke the simple nature of Brown Dog's character. A down-on-his-luck pulp cutter of uncertain Native American lineage, Brown Dog has simple tastes and ambitions. Left to his own devices, he'd be content to spend his days in Michigan's remote Upper Peninsula, fly fishing and living rent free in deer-hunting shacks in exchange for repairs. But his passion for peppermint schnapps and women contributes to a series of misadventures. With affable and gentle readings the narrators each adopt expressive Native American accents for the voice of Brown Dog. Pinchot's amused tone in "Westward Ho," in particular, had me smiling at Brown Dog's encounter with Southern California culture. The production is equally strong throughout. S.N.M.
