Contents The ancient minstrel -- Eggs -- The case of the howling Buddhas.
Abstract A collection of three novellas by acclaimed author Jim Harrison. The ancient minstrel: An aging writer in Montana indulges his lifelong dream of raising pigs, struggles to write the "big novel" he's rashly promised his editor, and attempts to rekindle the long marriage that has sustained him. Eggs: A Montana woman reminisces about staying in London with her grandparents, and collecting eggs at their country house. Years later, having never had a child, she attempts to do so. The case of the howling Buddhas: Retired Detective Sunderson is hired as a private investigator to look into a bizarre cult that achieves satori by howling along with howler monkeys at the zoo.
