Twenty-five years of essays from one of America's most prolific and acclaimed writers, the New York Times–bestselling author of Legends of the Fall. The bestselling author of thirty-nine books of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry—including Dalva and Returning to Earth—Jim Harrison was one of our most beloved and acclaimed writers, adored by both readers and critics. In Just Before Dark, Harrison's essays and articles have been selected from twenty-five years of work, from venues as diverse as Playboy, The Nation, Outside, and the American Poetry Review. They explore the passions and concerns of a classic American writer—from ice fishing to bar pool, nouvelle cuisine and night walks—with keen insight and great humanity. It is an exceptional reminder of why Harrison was one of our most cherished and important writers. "One of the most interesting and entertaining bodies of work by any writer of his generation." —Alan Cheuse, Chicago Tribune
