April is a great time to stock up on summer reads!

Pick Up Your Copy of the late Jim Harrison's last book, The Ancient Minstrel

In "The Ancient Minstrel," Harrison delivers three novellas that highlight his phenomenal range as a writer, shot through with his trademark wit and keen insight into the human condition. Harrison has tremendous fun with his own reputation in the title novella, about an aging writer in Montana who spars with his estranged wife, with whom he still shares a home, weathers the slings and arrows of literary success, and tries to cope with the sow he buys on a whim and the unplanned litter of piglets that follow soon after. In "Eggs," a Montana woman reminisces about staying in London with her grandparents, and collecting eggs at their country house. Years later, having never had a child, she attempts to do so. And in "The Case of the Howling Buddhas," retired Detective Sundersona recurring character from Harrison's "New York Times" bestseller "The Great Leader" and "The Big Seven"is hired as a private investigator to look into a bizarre cult that achieves satori by howling along with howler monkeys at the zoo.
