Episode Three – Jim Harrison and Jamie Harrison Potenberg
For the third episode of Breakfast in Montana, we discuss A Good Day to Die, by Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall and other classic novels about the West, as well as a novel by his daughter Jamie Harrison Potenberg called The Widow Nash. There are several interesting parallels between these two novels, despite the fact that they take place in different times and despite the fact that they are very different writers.
But one thing we both agreed on…Jamie got the writing gene. The prose in each of these novels is stellar.
