The Farmer’s Daughter by Jim Harrison (2010)
I discovered Jim Harrison when Anthony Bourdain featured him and his hometown of Livingston, Montana, on his food and travel show No Reservations. Since then I’ve read three of his books, the best being The Farmer’s Daughter, a collection of three novellas.
In the first, a girl grows up quick in Montana. In the second, an alcoholic Indian chases women and struggles to take of his niece; and finally, a werewolf roams the Mexican countryside. I’m still not sure if I like Harrison’s longwinded style, but his passion for food, music, art, and the wilderness keep me coming back.
