A classic collection full of salty wisdom, from 'the Henry Miller of food writing' (Wall Street Journal) and author of Legends of the Fall. Food is an extreme sport for Jim Harrison. As a seven-month old baby he was found chewing the leather binding of the family Bible with 'its slightly beefy flavour'; from then on, when he didn't have his nose in a book he could be found eating - everything. The Raw and the Cooked collects his musings on meat, marinades and a million other things besides, from the man who likes to wrestle his dinner to the ground then wash it down with a really good 1967 Latour.

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.

There’s never been a book about food like Let’s Eat France! A book that feels literally larger than life, it is a feast for food lovers and Francophiles, combining the completist virtues of an encyclopedia and the obsessive visual pleasures of infographics with an enthusiast’s unbridled joy. Here are classic recipes, including how to make a pot-au-feu, eight essential composed salads, pâté en croûte, blanquette de veau, choucroute, and the best ratatouille. Profiles of French food icons like Colette and Curnonsky, Brillat-Savarin and Bocuse, the Troigros dynasty and Victor Hugo. A region-by-region index of each area’s famed cheeses, charcuterie, and recipes. Poster-size guides to the breads of France, the wines of France, the oysters of France—even the frites of France. You’ll meet endive, the belle of the north; discover the croissant timeline; understand the art of tartare; find a chart of wine bottle sizes, from the tiny split to the Nebuchadnezzar (the equivalent of 20 standard bottles); and follow the family tree of French sauces. Adding to the overall delight of the book is the random arrangement of its content (a tutorial on mayonnaise is next to a list of places where Balzac ate), making each page a found treasure. It’s a book you’ll open anywhere—and never want to close.

In Memory Of Bread

The funny, poignant memoir of one man’s struggle to come to terms with his celiac diagnosis, forcing him to reexamine his relationship with food. When Paul Graham was suddenly diagnosed with celiac disease at the age of thirty-six, he was forced to say goodbye to traditional pasta, pizza, sandwiches, and more. Gone, too, were some of his favorite hobbies, including brewing beer with a buddy and gorging on his wife’s homemade breads. Struggling to understand why he and so many others had become allergic to wheat, barley, rye, oats, and other dietary staples, Graham researched the production of modern wheat and learned that not only has the grain been altered from ancestral varieties but it’s also commonly added to thousands of processed foods. In writing that is effortless and engaging, Paul explores why incidence of the disease is on the rise while also grappling with an identity crisis—given that all his favorite pastimes involved wheat in some form. His honest, unflinching, and at times humorous journey towards health and acceptance makes an inspiring read.

“Jim Harrison has probed the breadth of human appetites--for food and drink, for art, for sex, for violence and, most significantly, for the great twin engines of love and death. Perhaps no American writer better appreciates those myriad drives; since the publication of his first collection of poetry . . . Harrison has become their poet laureate.” In Jim Harrison’s new book of poems, birds and humans converse, biographies are fluid, and unknown gods flutter just out of sight. In terrains real and imagined--from remote canyons and anonymous thickets in the American West to secret basements in World War II Europe--Harrison calls his readers to live fully in a world where “Death steals everything except our stories.” In Search of Small Gods is an urgent and imaginative book--one filled with “the spore of the gods.” Maybe the problem is that I got involved with the wrong crowd of gods when I was seven. At first they weren’t harmful and only showed themselves as fish, birds, especially herons and loons, turtles, a bobcat and a small bear, but not deer and rabbits who only offered themselves as food. And maybe I spent too much time inside the water of lakes and rivers. Underwater seemed like the safest church I could go to . . . Jim Harrison is the author of thirty books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including Legends of the Fall and Shape of the Journey. A long-time resident of Michigan, he now lives in Montana and Arizona.

These conversations delve into the writers philosophies and teaching methods.
