Jim Harrison in The New York Times

All-American author and eater indeed. Jim Harrison is profiled in The New York Times by Charles McGrath, who notes that the author, who writes in a rustic shack rented from his Arizona neighbor, is more prolific than ever. “‘My mind can’t stop running fictively,’ he said, explaining that he was turning out books these days faster than his publisher could cope with them.”But that’s O.K. Maybe I’ll just write some novels and leave them to my daughters, so they’ll have something when I cack.’” A wonderful interview with insight into one of the U.S.’s most underappreciated authors. Harrison’s latest novel is Returning to Earth (Grove Press, November 2006, 272 pages). (Thanks to reader Chris Miller for this link.)
