You are going to want to own this book. A memoir. My suggestion is to get the hardcover from the library, take your time, read it then return it. Then buy a stack of softcovers and keep them in your car. When you find someone you find interesting, perhaps someone who isn’t on social media, someone who thinks, someone who likes the outdoors, humor, good writing and a life worth living then give them a copy. I do this with several other books, and I think I’m going to add this book to my trunk.
I was going to relay a few of the books high points, but there were so many I just gave up. Poetry, fiction, nonfiction and screenplays. You have probably seen, read or experienced Jim Harrison, but “Off to the Side” will give you, in the author’s words, the story of his life. It’s a good one.
