True North, Jim Harrison, Grove Press books

Michigan has been home to Jim Harrison for most of his life, and with this extaordinary work he has written a novel about his homeland. The story of a family torn apart and a man engaged in profound reckoning with the damage scarred into the American soil. An epic tale that pits a son against the legacy of his family's desecration of the earth, and his own father's more personal violations, a beautiful and moving novel that speaks to the territory in our hearts that calls us back to our roots.

Bought: used hardback, Compendium bookshop, 4 euro
