Overview


Jim Harrison, a literary maverick, is widely considered one of the great and iconic writers in contemporary American literature. This pioneering volume, an extensive and up-to-date illustrated guide to Harrison’s published works, is the first full-length catalog of a distinguished literary career spanning more than forty years. Longtime Harrison readers and collectors Gregg Orr and Beef Torrey have amassed a thorough list of the author’s wide-ranging work, annotated and arranged by genre to provide a full view of the breadth of Harrison’s accomplishment. This work contains more than sixteen hundred citations of writings by and about Harrison, including his fiction, poetry, essays, interviews, screenplays, criticism, and reviews; it also features photographs of his books, dust jackets, and broadsides.
 
With a foreword by Harrison, penned especially for this seminal volume, and an introduction by writer and scholar Robert DeMott, this is the definitive bibliographical study of a major figure in late twentieth- and early twenty-first-century American letters.
