Overview
A novel with a wondrous blend of insight, storytelling, and the author's uncanny ability to evoke the mysteries and beauties of the natural world

Joseph is a forty-three-year-old farmer-schoolteacher who suddenly finds himself at a crossroads. Forced to choose between two lovers--one a tantalizing young student, the other his beautiful childhood friend--he must also decide whether or not to stay on the farm or finally seek the wider, more worldly horizons he has avoided all his life.

Praise for Farmer

"A quiet triumph . . . Joseph is a man suffocated by everything he loves most in the world; the land and its ghosts, love and friendship, integrity. Yes, it is the old story again. Taking it and make it new as Harrison has done, is a miracle on the order of loaves and fishes. But then so are all good novels."--The Washington Post

"A sensitive, powerful love story about a man on the cutting edge of life . . . The characters are so real that often my eyes filled up with tears for their plight, their human helplessness."--Richard Brautigan
