Description of American Corporate by Jeb Stewart HarrisonA playful, big-hearted tragicomedy in the Russo/Irving mold, American Corporate chronicles the misadventures of middle-aged Jack Sullivan and his family as they bounce across the country in search of gainful employment, domestic tranquility, and a few people they can trust. It is a story that working parents past, present and future will see as part of their own: the triumphs, the tragedies, the innocent mistakes and the not-so-innocent mistakes, and above all the forgiveness that keeps families together to face another challenge.
Praise Healing of Howard Brown by Jeb Stewart HarrisonIf you enjoy beautiful prose, complex themes of family and race, and a refreshingly original narrator, this book is for you. Harrison is among the select few contemporary fiction writers who still write for serious readers.
Jim Heynen, author, best known for The One Room Schoolhouse, The Boys House, You Know What is Right, The Man Who Kept Cigars in His Cap and many more.
This book starts off with a bang and keeps on going. Howard is a character with a specific voice and story. I'm sure you'll be provoked and entertained.
Jessica Barksdale Inclan, author of The Believe Trilogy, The Being Trilogy, and many more.
In The Healing of Howard Brown, author Jeb Stewart Harrison weaves an intriguing contemporary literary. The author provides a wonderful mixture of drama, humor, and seriousness to the story that easily keeps the reader's interest as Howard's journey unfolds. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much I really enjoyed the author's rich and vividly descriptive style of writing, especially the wonderful descriptions of the California and Louisiana settings. The Healing of Howard Brown is a thought-provoking contemporary literary tale that will draw you in, touch your soul, and leave a smile on your face.
Kathleen Higgins-Anderson, Jersey Girl Book Reviews
I'm so happy that I read this book. It is beautifully written, wonderful imagery, and has such a heartwarming story as you follow along with Howard healing from the past. This is a wonderful story and one that I strongly recommend.
Jeb Stewart Harrison's novel, THE HEALING of HOWARD BROWN brought to mind the novels of Roland Merullo, particularly, BREAKFAST WITH BUDDHA. Along the way, to his childhood home, and hopefully his sister, Howard finds more than expected and what he's missing in the most unlikely places. The journey allows Howard to meditate on family relationships, issues such as love, life, death, fear and ultimately finding one's personal peace. We the readers, if open, are able to learn from some of Howard, Mr Booper and even the author, Jeb's experiences.

4 Star reviewI received this book with the request for an honest review. I enjoyed reading it and could easily associate with most of the characters. Having worked in the corporate world for approximately 48 years. Many scenarios and settings in the book came alive as if it happened around me. The dealings and conniving were portrayed very, very realistic. The struggles of Jack and Carrie, with growing children, under the cloud of unemployment and desperation is known to my own real-life dramas.However, I was disappointed with some use and reference to Jesus to be blasphemous. Apart from that a good read – I finished the book in one and a half days – just couldn’t put it down.
I rate it at 4/5.
ExcerptCarrie Sullivan sat in front of her laptop, her fingers twitching over the keys, eager to respond to the email from her mystery correspondent, a guy who called himself Sunny. The noon sun through the haze gave the view an out-of-season autumnal flavor, softening the glare on her screen so that she didn’t even have to lower the Roman shades. The house, which she honestly feared might not be her house for long, was quiet; Karen, the housekeeper that Jack continually insisted was no longer affordable, had not yet arrived.
