A Really Big Lunch: Meditations on Food and Life from the Roving Gourmand by Jim HarrisonNew York Times bestselling author Jim Harrison was one of this country’s most beloved writers, a muscular, brilliantly economic stylist with a salty wisdom. He also wrote some of the best essays on food around, earning praise as “the poet laureate of appetite” (Dallas Morning News). A Really Big Lunch, to be published on the one-year anniversary of Harrison’s death, collects many of his food pieces for the first time—and taps into his larger-than-life appetite with wit and verve.
Jim Harrison’s legendary gourmandise is on full display in A Really Big Lunch.

Shortly after the filming of this episode, Jim passed away, only a few months after the death of his beloved wife of many years, Linda.
