Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A triumph.” New Yorker
“So much American legend is packed into these brief pages that Jim Harrison must be admired as an almost sacred writer.” Chicago Sun-Times
“In place of a single point of view and a restriction of time, place, number of scenes and characters, Mr. Harrison delivers, in eighty-seven pages, a complete two-generation family saga…The steady, singing, epic voice assures and reassures us that we are hearing—as the title claims—legend, not reality. In compression, unexpectedly, lies credibility.” New York Times
“Compelling…beyond question the work of a gifted and accomplished writer.” Washington Post
