Summary

In his eighty-seven years, Norman Maclean played many parts: fisherman, logger, firefighter, scholar, teacher. But it was a role he took up late in life, that of writer, that won him enduring fame and critical acclaim-as well as the devotion of readers worldwide. Though the 1976 collection A River Runs Through It and Other Storieswas the only book Maclean published in his lifetime, it was an unexpected success, and the moving family tragedy of the title novella-based largely on Maclean's memories of his childhood home in Montana-has proved to be one of the most enduring American stories ever written. The Norman Maclean Readeris a wonderful addition to Maclean's celebrated oeuvre. Bringing together previously unpublished materials with incidental writings and selections from his more famous works, the Readerwill serve as the perfect introduction for readers new to Maclean, while offering longtime fans new insight into his life and career. In this evocative collection, Maclean as both a writer and a man becomes evident. Perceptive, intimate essays deal with his career as a teacher and a literary scholar, as well as the wealth of family stories for which Maclean is famous. Complete with a generous selection of letters, as well as excerpts from a 1986 interview, The Norman Maclean Readerprovides a fully fleshed-out portrait of this much admired author, showing us a writer fully aware of the nuances of his craft, and a man as at home in the academic environment of the University of Chicago as in the quiet mountains of his beloved Montana. Multifarious and moving, the works collected in The Norman Maclean Readerserve as both a summation and a celebration, giving readers a chance once again to hear one of American literature's most distinctive voices.
