'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.”
