The April read for the bookclub is “The English Major” by Jim Harrison.
It used to be Cliff and Vivian and now it isn t. With these words, Jim Harrison begins a riotous, moving novel that sends a sixty-something man, divorced and robbed of his farm by a late-blooming real estate shark of an ex-wife, on a road trip across America. His adventures take him through a whirlwind affair with a former student from his high-school-teacher days twenty-some years before, to a snake farm in Arizona owned by an old classmate, and to the high-octane existence of his son, a big-time movie producer who has just bought an apartment over the Presidio in San Francisco. Harrison’s riotous and moving cross-country novel, “The English Major,” is the map of a man’s journey into, and out of, himself. It is vintage Harrison, reflective, big-picture American, and replete with wicked wit.”
