The late Jim Harrison was widely recognized for both non-fiction books and fiction, including Legends of the Fall, and as a food writer. His lean writing and his enthusiasm for good food and the occasional adventure is a powerful antidote to flowery over-reflection.

It’s easy to imagine you’re going to enjoy an essay that opens, “One wonders, doesn’t one, why we are insufficiently wily in foreign affairs. Without question, it is because we do not eat vividly. We are always being euchred out by people with superior diets with more interesting food.” This collection ranges wildly over topics as varied as wine rating systems, the advantages of cooking meat on the bone, and the role and perils of imagination in the kitchen.

You never quite know what will come next, and that’s one of its pleasures. 

Paperback. B-&-W photos.
