The first new book since A Really Big Lunch from the legendary author of Legends of the Fall and Returning to Earth.
A Really Big Lunch, published just after Harrison's death, has performed very well, with more than 20,000 copies sold across all formats and rapturous review attention.
In the nonfiction arena, Just Before Dark (1991) is one of Harrison's best-loved books, a collection of essays spanning his interest in sports, hunting and fishing, the natural world, literature, and of course food. Grove has published two books of food writing by Harrison, but we've never had a general interest nonfiction title from him, which The Search for the Genuine very much is. There are pieces here on deep water ocean fishing, the history and future of Yellowstone, a heartbreaking piece on life and death on the Mexico border, writing about Zen and other spiritual matters, and much more.
There are several pieces here that never saw print in Harrison's lifetime and will delight fans who may think they know Harrison's nonfiction. This book is a feast.
Harrison's backlist continues to sell, cumulatively netting over 750,000 copies.
Published in twenty-seven languages, Harrison was one of America's most beloved and critically-acclaimed authors.
After Harrison's passing in March 2016, there was an enormous outpouring of appreciation and recognition for his work.
This new essay collection will feature new and previously published essays on everything from hunting and fishing to musings on the meaning of life.
