Fast pace, enormous narrative power . . . Legends of the Fall stays firmly in the unputdownable class.
Jim Harrison stands high among the writers of his generation. This book is rich, alive, and shatteringly visceral. A triumph.
Compelling . . . beyond question the work of a gifted and accomplished writer.
[Legends of the Fall] may well be the best set of novellas to appear in this country during the last quarter century.
New York Times Book Review
Legends of the Fall signalled that Jim Harrison was a writer who had the goods.
Los Angeles Times
So much American legend is packed into these brief pages that Jim Harrison must be admired as an almost sacred writer.
