The publication of this magnificent trilogy of short novels — Legends Of The Fall, Revenge, and The Man Who Gave Up His Name — confirmed Jim Harrison's reputation as one of the finest American writers of his generation. These absorbing novellas explore the theme of revenge and the actions to which people resort when their lives or goals are threatened, adding up to an extraordinary vision of the twentieth-century man.

About the Author:

Jim Harrison (1937 2016) was the New York Times-bestselling author of nine volumes of novellas, twelve novels, fourteen collections of poetry, a book of children’s literature, a memoir, and two collections of non-fiction. His books include Legends of the Fall, Dalva, and Returning to Earth. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and winner of a National Endowment for the Arts grant, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Spirit of the West Award from the Mountain and Plains Booksellers Association, his work was published in twenty-seven languages.

Review:

''A triumph.'' --New Yorker

''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
