JULIP by Jim Harrison (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Harrison is inherently refreshing….His energy appears unmitigated.” (Publishers Weekly)
In three novellas, Jim Harrison takes us on an American journey through the human heart. In “Julip” a young woman tries to spring her brother from a Florida jail. “The Seven-Ounce Man” continues the picaresque adventures of Brown Dog. The Beige Dolorosa is about an academic recovering from a sexual-harassment scandal.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Earphones®-winning narrators Ray Porter, Hillary Huber and William Hughes. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

RATING: 12+ Suitable for adults who enjoy touching and original modern literature.
In three novellas, Jim Harrison takes us on an American journey as he leads us through the wondrous landscape of the human heart. “Julip” follows a bright and resourceful young woman as she tries to spring her brother from a Florida jail (he had shot three of her former lovers “below the belt”). “The Seven-Ounce Man” continues the picaresque adventures of Brown Dog, a Michigan scoundrel who loves to eat, drink, and chase women, all while sailing along in the bottom ten percent. “The Beige Dolorosa” is the haunting tale of an academic who, recovering from the repercussions of a sexual harassment scandal, turns to the natural world for solace.
In each of these stories, the irresistible pull of nature becomes a magnificent backdrop for exploring the toughest questions about life and love.
