Summer Reading, Reading List XIII

Full disclosure, I have only been the Upper Peninsula of Michigan a few times, but as a long time fan of Jim Harrison’s writing I have a fondness for the place.  Well, for the idea of the place…much of Harrison’s work is set in his native UP and the quintessential Jim Harrison hero–an angst-ridden native of Northern Michigan estranged from a love he is not entirely over on the cusp of a mid-life crisis hard drinking male–is one of the great heroic types in contemporary American literature.  In paddling across that Lake Superior otherwise known as the Internet, I came across this list of 2017 Bestsellers from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, and I couldn’t resist.  So here, without further ado, are the top UP books of 2017:

I must confess to being a little unsure why the Hemingway collection makes the list, and while all the titles not in the SLU Libraries are attainable through Interlibrary Loan, give your favorite Interlibrary Loan office a little time to chase down the Kath Usitalo title!  Happy reading…
