Great Lakes/Great Books is a monthly discussion group of books that have a focus on the Great Lakes or on water in general. Works of fiction, nonfiction, and more are discussed both in-person and virtually. This month’s selection is Wolf by Jim Harrison.
About the book
Wolf tells the story of a man who–after too many nameless women and drunken nights–leaves Manhattan to roam the wilderness of northern Michigan, hoping to catch a glimpse of the rare wolves that prowl that territory. Returning Harrison fans will be ecstatic to rediscover this early novel once again, and for new readers, this work serves as the perfect introduction to Harrison’s remarkable insight, storytelling skill, and evocation of the natural world.
