Whitefish Review Releases New Interview with Author Jim Harrison
Harrison died in Arizona of natural causes on March 26

Whitefish Review has released a new interview with the author Jim Harrison, one of the last interviews before his death last weekend.

Harrison was one of contemporary literature’s most versatile and prolific writers, publishing 39 books across many genres and drawing comparisons to Hemingway and Faulkner.

He died in Arizona of natural causes on March 26, just a handful of months after giving Whitefish Review an interview. He was 78.

Harrison invited associate editor Benjamin Polley and photographer Erik Petersen into his writing studio for a vivid, wide-ranging talk about art, loss, illness and the arc of his life.

One of Harrison’s best-known works, the novella Legends of the Fall (1979), was made into a Hollywood movie in 1994 starring Brad Pitt and helped elevate him as a writer when he was a younger man.

While a celebrated writer in the States, he had reached legendary status in France, where his books sell by the hundreds of thousands and his followers call him the “Mozart of the Plains.”
