"Mr. Harrison's perceptions are jagged and cutting...? remarkably well-plotted story."-Christopher Lehmann-Haupt, The New York Times The New York Times bestselling author of thirty-nine books of fiction, non-fiction, and poetry-including Legends of the Fall, Dalva, and Returning to Earth-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.
