A road trip novel of three desperate souls fueled by drugs, alcohol, and delusions-from the New York Times-bestselling author of Legends of the Fall. The author of thirty-nine books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry, Jim Harrison was one of our most beloved and acclaimed writers, adored by both readers and critics. His novel, A Good Day to Die, centers on an unlikely trio: a poet with a tendency to lapse into beatific reveries of superb fishing in cold, fast streams; a Vietnam vet consumed by uppers, downers, and violence; and a girl who loved only one of them-at first. With plans conceived during the madness of one long drunken night, the three of them leave Florida, driving west to buy a case of dynamite, determined to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believe is about to be built. A Good Day to Die is an unrelenting tour de force, and a dark exploration of what it means to live beyond the pale in contemporary America. "Mr. Harrison's perceptions are jagged and cutting . . . A remarkably well-plotted story." -Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times
