THE ANCIENT MINSTREL

New York: Grove Press, (2016). First edition. Hardcover. Three novellas by the master of the genre. The title tale Harrison has a lot of fun with. It is about an aging Montana writer who's at the stage of his career when his work is increasingly discussed in terms of his legacy. The second novella, 'Eggs', a Montana woman recalls a life spent collecting eggs, at her gandparents' farm in Montana and in Cornwall, England, where she ends up during World War II. Eggs of a different sort preoccupy her when, unmarried but undneterred, she decides to try to have a baby. In the final novella, 'The Case of the Howling Buddhas, retired Detective Sanderson, a recurring character from Harrison's New York Times bestseller 'The Great Leader and the Big Seven, is hired as a private investigator to look into a bizarre cult that achieves satori by howling along with howler monkeys at the zoo.
