About the Author:

Screenwriter, poet, and fiction writer Jim Harrison lives in Michigan.

From AudioFile:

The three novellas in this production depict vastly different landscapes of the human heart. BROWN DOG, narrated by Ray Porter, follows a scavenging diver and his entangled loves. Porter is eminently believable as the tough, hard-drinking B.D., whose strong timbre is filled with intensity as his discovers the preserved body of an Indian chief in the depths of Lake Superior. Harrison's poetic side paints a vivid thriller in SUNSET LIMITED, narrated by Carrington MacDuffie, a story that reunites four 1960s radicals who are called upon to rescue an ex-cohort from a Mexican jail. MacDuffie strikes just the right unaffected yet expressive tones while narrating this compelling tale. In the last piece, Clare, the valiant WOMAN LIT BY FIREFLIES, flees her bigoted husband, ultimately hiding in an Iowa cornfield during a night of soul-searching. Lorna Raver's delivery resonates with Clare's gentle strength as she reflects upon her past. A.W. AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
