Episode Twenty-Three – Norman Maclean and John Maclean
John Maclean, son of Montana icon Norman Maclean, has become a fine writer in his own right, and he recently published what he calls ‘a chronicle’ of his life with his father and his own relationship to Norman’s enormously successful novella, A River Runs Through It. Home Waters is a terrific tale that explores the importance and complicated nature of relationships between fathers and sons, and about how he and his father both become fascinated with fishing and fires. We had the great pleasure of talking with John for a solid hour about what this experience was like for him.
