|Name Jim Harris|
Jim Harris is an American novelist. He has written three acclaimed novels in the 21st Century, one of which was nominated for a Pen USA award. He writes comic novels about the human condition with characters who are almost always marginalized. His style is often compared to Tom Robbins and Kurt Vonnegut but his content is rougher-edged and often compared to Jim Thompson and Cormac McCarthy with more comic overtones. His unique approach to his characters delineates him from most other comic American male writers, as females are the lead characters in all of his novels.
