Have You Ever Discovered "Just the Kind of Book" You Want to Write?
"After reading Jim Harrison's novella, Legends of the Fall. Roughly a hundred years of family (and world) history compressed into roughly a hundred pages of the most luminous prose I had ever read up to that point. I don't know why, but after reading that novella, I wasn't content to simply remain a reader. Something changed, and it had to do with the great characterizations and incredibly specific and painterly lush descriptions of landscape, particularly wild country." — Rick Bass, All the Land to Hold Us
