    has been several years since I first read Farmer but I must admit I had no idea how good the novel was back then I suppose this current revelation has everything to do with my advancing age the fact that I have had similar experiences and that existential uestions present themselves the educated and well read one becomes There are so many sidebars in this novel subplots and personal histories between the main c

Short bittersweet and simply superb I discovered Jim Harrison while in college thirty some years ago when I read of his first novel Wolf A False Memoir When he mentioned Reed City in the first line of that book I was hooked I never imagined that the little town where I grew up would ever make the pages of good fiction I shouldn t have been surprised though Jim Harrison did some growing up in Reed City too His dad Win Harrison was the county agent here The Harrisons moved away to the Lansing area around 1949 but Jim still credits Reed City as a formative influence in his memoir Off to the Side There have been a lot of Harrison books since Wolf and I ve read most of them but in re reading it recently Farmer still holds up well after than 30 years In fact I still think it is his best novel It is so much than just a love story although it certainly is that It is a tale of lust and longing but also one of regret and redemption Joseph Lundgren the title character is at once complex and simple He is Everyman In Wolf the protagonist looked for a wolf in the wilderness mountains of Upper Michigan in the sixties a time when wolves were all but gone from the state That same theme chasing a ghost animal of an earlier time shows up again in Farmer when Joseph tries to get a glimpse of a coyote What he finally sees is no than a blur for a tenth of a second What the middle aged teacherfarmer Joseph wants in his ill advised affair with a beautiful high school student is nearly as impossible to define as that search for the elsusive and all but extinct coyote I wanted to be carried away he says trying to explain things to his twin sister And at least for a little while he succeeded And while I know there is no political correctness about this thirty year old novel any man today who can still be honest about his real feelings and simply say the hell with propriety and political correctness will understand Joseph and what he did Harrison puts you inside Joseph s skin You feel his despair his regrets his longing for something Farmer may be a very short book but it is as nearly perfect as a novel can ever hope to be

Joseph is 43 a farmer teacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads Forced to choos. First the Goodreads description of this book is actually the description of Harrison s The Farmer s Daughter which is a collection of three novellas and written 33 years after this one Fortunately I found this in the 1 must go shelves of a used bookstore and thumbing through it could see that it was a completely different book That s been corrected by Teresa so you know never mind Farmer is one of Harrison s earliest works He works his usual themes here but without the polish of later efforts Very few aphorisms to guide me The eponymous farmer is Joseph Lundgren consigned to be a teacher because of a leg damaged in a farm euipment accident But they re going to close the Upper Michigan school where he teaches his mother is dying and he has to decide whether he really loves his old sweetheart Rosalee or a senior student named Catherine He s painted as a good but flawed man who maybe just doesn t give a shit any His friend is a 70 year old doctor who shares many of his vices but serves as oracle Dr Evans steals the showHarrison s male characters are invariable sex obsessed and prone to alcoholism He may be projecting But Harrison also is surprisingly enlightened for as here an author writing in the 1970s For instance Joseph tells Dr Evans that Rosalee s son is homosexual and he asks the doctor what they can do about it Dr Evans replies Nothing You can start by leaving him alone He ll probably move to the city where he can find some friends So don t say much and don t let Rosalee say much He s a man and it s his business and you can t change him Some are and most aren t and it s always been like thatIt was nice comforting to be reading Jim Harrison again but this was hardly his best effort
