A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT and Other Stories
Chicago: The University of Chicago Press, 1976. First edition. Fine/Near Fine. A Fine copy of the book with a small mark to the closed page block, otherwise appearing unused and unread. In a Near Fine dust jacket with a touch of wear at the crown and slight fading at the spine. Norman Maclean's 1976 semi-autobiographical short story collection, including the titular piece along with "Logging and Pimping and 'Your pal, Jim'" and "USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook, and a Hole in the Sky." In 1977 the Pulitzer Prize committee suggested "A River Runs Through It" be awarded the prize for fiction, but they were overruled and no prize was awarded. The book was adapted into a 1992 Robert Redford film, starring Craig Scheffer and Brad Pitt and would receive three Academy Award nominations. Critic Alfred Kazin praised the book in a review for the Chicago Tribune: "There are passages here of physical rapture in the presence of unsullied primitive America that are as beautiful as anything in Thoreau and Hemingway.". Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
