New York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison is one of America's most beloved and critically acclaimed writers. Now available in eBook for the first time, the classic Legends of the Fall is Harrison at his most memorable: a striking collection of novellas written with exceptional brilliance and a ferocious love of life. The title novella, 'Legends of the Fall'-which was made into the film of the same name-is an epic, moving tale of three brothers fighting for justice in a world gone mad. Moving from the raw landscape of early twentieth-century Montana to the blood-drenched European battlefields of World War I and back again to Montana, Harrison's powerful story explores the theme of revenge and the actions to which people resort when their lives or goals are threatened, painting an unforgettable portrait of the twentieth-century man. Also including the novellas 'Revenge' and 'The Man Who Gave Up His Name,' Legends of the Fall confirms Jim Harrison's reputation as one of the finest American voices of his generation.

"Nordstrom rushed from the apartment to find a prostitute. There were none to be had in the neighborhood bars and he ended up watching a Red Sox game on television, baseball being an effective nationwide soporific."
The cover (taken from the ridiculous 1994 movie) is a little misleading and this actually contains three novellas: "Revenge," "The Man Who Gave Up His Name," and the title story. "Revenge" about a man getting, you guessed it revenge, on the dude who tried to kill him was also made into a bad movie (1990) was a little too macho for my taste. The middle story is by far the best, a kind of Cheever or Updike type plot, but with more vitality and guts than they usually have. The title novella is very different than the movie and way better, which is no surprise.
