In The New York Times, book reviewer Liesl Schillinger says that the “masculine mystique” that imbues Harrison’s writing is ever-present the new story collection The Farmer’s Daughter (Grove Press, 384 pages). “Don’t be fooled by the trout, the dogs, the pickup trucks, the whiskey, the cowboys and Indians, and the war stories. Beneath the rugged trappings of Jim Harrison’s manly fiction hides the tensile, scorch-proof frame of the red-hot romance, whose heroes are totems of an idealized, brute masculinity.”
