Named to the Notable Books of the Year lists from The Kansas City Star and the Michigan Library Association. "Jim Harrison is a writer with immortality in him."-The Times (London) "This is [Harrison's] most robust, sure-footed, and blood-raising poetry collection to date."-Booklist Jim Harrison-one of America's most beloved writers-calls his poetry "the true bones of my life." Although he is best known as a fiction writer, it is as a poet that Publishers Weekly famously called him an "untrammeled renegade genius." Saving Daylight, Harrison's tenth collection of poetry, is his first book of new poems in a decade. All of Harrison's abundant passions for life are poured into suites, prose poems, letter-poems, and even lyrics for a mariachi band. The subjects and concerns are wide-ranging-from the heart-rending "Livingston Suite," where a boy drowns in the local river and the body is discovered by the poet's wife-to some of the most harrowing political poems of Harrison's career. There is also a cast of creature characters-bears, dogs, birds, fish-as well as the woodlands, thickets, and occasional cities of Arizona, Montana, Michigan, France, and Mexico. "Imagination is my only possession," Harrison once said. And Saving Daylight is an imagination in full, exuberant bloom. Jim Harrison is the author of over thirty books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction. His work has been translated into dozens oflanguages. Born and raised in Michigan, he now lives in Montana and Arizona.

Jim Harrison was born December 11, 1937 in Grayling, Mich. to Winfield and Norma Harrison. After receiving his B.A. from Michigan State University in 1960 and his M.A. from the same school in 1964, Harrison briefly taught English at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. Legends of the Fall, written in 1979, was Harrison's first major work of fiction. Published as a set of three novellas, entitled Revenge, The Man Who Gave Up His Last Name, and Legends of the Fall, the trilogy explores the theme of revenge and the effect it has on all of those involved. In 1994, Harrison wrote the screenplay based on the novella Legends of the Fall for a feature film starring Anthony Hopkins and Brad Pitt. The epic western saga, told amidst the backdrop of World War I, details the lives of three brothers who are in love with the same woman. Another of Harrison's novels, Dalva, was adapted as a made-for-television movie featuring Rod Steiger and Farrah Fawcett in the lead roles. Besides writing numerous novels and screenplays, Harrison has contributed poems to numerous anthologies, and has also written stories, articles, reviews, and poems for various publications.
