Review:

Fast pace, enormous narrative power ... Legends of the Fall stays firmly in the unputdownable class. Daily Telegraph Jim Harrison stands high among the writers of his generation. This book is rich, alive, and shatteringly visceral. A triumph. New Yorker Compelling ... beyond question the work of a gifted and accomplished writer. Washington Post [Legends of the Fall] may well be the best set of novellas to appear in this country during the last quarter century. New York Times Book Review Legends of the Fall signalled that Jim Harrison was a writer who had the goods. Los Angeles Times So much American legend is packed into these brief pages that Jim Harrison must be admired as an almost sacred writer. Chicago Sun-Times

From the Back Cover:

'Legends of the Fall', an epic tale of three brothers and their lives of passion, madness, exploration and danger at the beginning of the Great War, confirms Jim Harrison’s reputation as one of the finest American writers of his generation.

This magnificent trilogy also contains two other superb short novels. In 'Revenge', love causes the course of a man’s life to be savagely and irrevocably altered. Nordstrom, in 'The Man Who Gave up his Name', is unable to relinquish his consuming obsessions with women, dancing and food.

“This is Harrison at the height of his powers.”
RAYMOND CARVER
