Publisher Description

In Farmer, Jim Harrison tells the story of Joseph, a forty-three-year-old farmer and school teacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads. Forced to choose between two lovers—one a younger woman, the other his beautiful childhood friend—he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or finally seek the wider, broader horizons he has avoided all his life.

Returning Harrison fans will be ecstatic to find this early Harrison work available in audio, and for new readers, this work serves as the perfect introduction to Harrison’s remarkable insight, storytelling, and evocation of the natural world.

  • “A beautiful novel.”

    - Boston Globe
  • “Superb.”

    - Saturday Review
  • “In Harrison’s hand the story is fresh with a gentle intuition.”

    - Houston Chronicle
  • “A quiet triumph…Joseph is a man suffocated by everything he loves most in the world: the land and its ghosts, love and friendship, integrity. Yes, it is the old story again. Taking it and making it new, as Harrison has done, is a miracle on the order of the loaves and fishes. But then so are all good novels.”

    - Washington Post
