In 2004, Jim Harrison wrote an article for The New Yorker about a 37-course lunch he ate in France "that likely cost as much as a new Volvo station wagon". Fully expecting to be criticized, he offered a defense at the outset. Absurd? Yes, but also funny and true and typical of Harrison, whose dry wit and mordant insight are on glorious display in this new collection of essays published a year after his death. Harrison, a prolific poet and novelist best known for "Legends of the Fall," died of a heart attack at age 78 .Faced with such dispiriting questions, Harrison inevitably turns to food, wine and poetry – and also hunting, fishing, dogs, birds and the great outdoors.
