Goldberg, of all people, gets it right.
blorky: (What would Al do?)
I had read "Legends of the Fall" years ago, and was prompted to re-read it after Anthony Bourdain visited Jim Harrison for a chapter of "No Reservations" on Montana.

I'm baffled as to the relative lack of fame for Harrison. He had a long run writing odd screenplays for Hollywood. (The world is a sadder place without the production of Harrison's screenplay for John Belushi in "A Confederacy of Dunces".)

Harrison is first and foremost a poet - a form that I don't understand very well. It shows in an absolutely masterful command of his craft. There isn't a sentence or phrase that isn't considered, that doesn't work for a living. I wonder if he's ever had an editor.

Pick up the 3 novella volume entitled "Legends of the Fall". It's great stuff. Foodies on my f-list will like "The Raw and the Cooked".
