About meA geologist who reads almost everything. I think Graham Greene commented on the sad state of people who don't create. I feel the same way about people who don't read.

Hi, John - I just finished reading and reviewing Jim Harrison's Just Before Dark and noticed yours was the only other review. Looks like you're a Harrison fan. I've met him a few times, but can't say I really know him, although we both grew up here in Reed City. He's several years older than I and moved down to Lansing area when I was only five or six. I don't like all of his books, but some are real gems. My favorite of all of them is FARMER, a novel he wrote more than 30 yrs ago. I enjoyed his recent novel, THE ENGLISH MAJOR, too. He seemed to have fun with that one, poking fun at himself and getting old. His newest book, THE FARMER'S DAUGHTER, is in the mail from Amazon right now. His first novel, WOLF, planted the seed many years ago that maybe a kid from Reed City could actually be a writer. But I was sixty before I published my first book. I've got the fifth one nearly ready to print now, so I figure I owe Harrison for something. Hope you're staying warm up there in Maine. Best, Tim Bazzett
