Reviews

"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."--The Washington Post

"A beautiful novel."--The Boston Globe

"Farmer is a sensitive, powerful love story about a man on the cutting edge of life . . . The characters are so real that often my eyes filled up with tears for their plight, their human helplessness."--Richard Brautigan

"Superb."--Saturday Review

"In Harrison's hand the story is fresh with a gentle intuition."--Houston Chronicle
