Uly an American book full of marvel and wonder and space A River Runs Through It "is only one of the stories in the book each better than that last Better still is "only one of the stories in the book each better than that last Better still is 1919 The Ranger the Cook and a Hole in the Sky Unbearably beautiful and what a story Something one really has a passion doing he often sees the entirety of human existence in it Many chess grandmasters for instance have written their auto biographies with titles like Chess is Life or How Chess Imitates Life or some such Golfers basketball players or martial arts practitioners like Bruce Lee see patterns principles and lessons in the sports they indulge in which they claim teach us about life in general and how to properly live it And so is it here fly fishing in the great rivers of Montana The reader in fact gets a broad hint of this right at its opening sentence which goesIn our family there was no clear line between religion and fly fishingThe reader who casts his eyes through it may get the feeling like I did that sometimes the author is stretching the analogy a little bit too far already very close to likening God himself to a river fish he didn t say that and often may roll his eyes in an amused disbelief that the author could for instance suggest that fishermen like him are better at grasping eternity than anyone else The body and spirit suffer no sudden visitation than that of losing a big fish since after all there must be some slight transition between life and death But with a big fish one moment the world is nuclear and the next it has disappearedPoets talk about spots of time but it is really fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone I shall remember that son of a bitch foreverIn any case even if you disregard the fact that the story follows the rote formula of getting an old man or woman as in the movie Titanic to narrate about his recollection of the past his reminiscences about his loved ones who had died especially those who perished in the prime of their lives and his own personal what could have beens I d say this probably has one of the most poignant endings in the whole of literature whether fiction or non fiction now nearly all those i loved fiction Now nearly all those I loved did not understand when I was young are dead but still I reach out to themOf course now I am too old to be much of a fisherman and now of course I usually fish the big waters alone although some friends think I shouldn t Like many fly fishermen in western Montana where the summer days are almost Arctic in length I often do not start fishing until the cool of the evening Then in the Arctic half light of the canyon all existence fades to a being with my soul and memories and the sounds of the Big Blackfoot River and a four count rhythm and the hope that a big fish will riseEventually all things merge into one and a river runs through it The river was cut by the world s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops Under the rocks are the words and some of the words are theirsI am haunted by watersI am not however haunted by waters I live in the city and its remaining rivers are shallow polluted and without any fish But we have great malls and are being built So if I were to write a story like this I ll end it with something like Eventually all our childhood playgrounds merge into one and a mall is built on it I am haunted by fastfoods There s not much I can write about this novella that would do it ustice but I ll tryIt s lyrical and poetic and simple and beautiful The prose is elegant and direct and there s a grace to every moment of it even when the subject matter is a drinkingfighting or whores Norman Maclean writes like Hemingway if Hemingway had gained a bit of wisdom and dropped the over arching need to prove something to his readers or himselfIt is a great read It s also a page turner I find it hard to read current literature All the men in those books are usually college professors or some other doesn t sweat while working profession that the author has ha.

This book is so good I have trouble telling people about it This might be because it is so easy to start off with Well it s this book about fly fishing The truth is the book IS about fly fishing but than that it is about life family love brotherhood and growing up It is the first novel the University of Chicago Press published and if you read it you ll understand why The lyricism of the words the elouence of the imagery and the poignancy of the story combine to make this what really should be considered an essential American classic It reads like good poetry flows like a river and I recommend it to anyone and everyone In our family there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana and our father was of great trout rivers in western Montana and our father was Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others I am haunted by riversAnd so begins master storyteller Norman Maclean s tale of his family in early 20th century Montana The book is a classic The first line is as perfect as any first line in any book And it uickly devolves to many pages of clever ocular manly speak not unlike listening to sports broadcasters It s a short book and I began to uestion during this long section why this is a classic It s okay and some of it is very funny but it was like sitting down next to a tongue in cheek type of wise guy at a bar But then it had this very memorable scene and I could finally see how it got made into a movie And there s the fishing that I likebut still I could not see the lasting value of this book Finally it became clear in the last 25 pages which are poetry And having the sister that I have I understood the things behind the fishing so well and there were a few scenes which said so clearly and so simply what you feel in this kind of scenario So I don t know It wasn t as consistently beautiful as I d hoped but it was worth a read My younger brother and I had a conversation growing up that went something like thisHim I can t wait to get out of here I m never coming back when I leave What about you Here I would always put on the most innocent of grins and reply Oh I ll never leave South Dakota brother It needs me here like I need it I ll never leave South Dakota brother It needs me here like I need it that we would both start laughing because he knew I had ust done a poor impression of Norman talking to his own brother Paul the mysterious brother who has wanderlust and dark secrets Time has passed for both my brother and I he has been in two wars I remained in South Dakota and started teaching at one of the colleges Occasionally he ll reference this conversation on the phone but his voice belies the fact that he misses what he left I think that is the point of A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT We are all destined to be some place Some of us will try to create this place Some of us will try to run from that place But no matter that we do that place will always call to us Haunt us This short novel novella really is about family and fly fishing and religion three mainstays of South Dakota It was easy to transplant myself within the story as I grew up with many of the same experiences that the Maclean boys did albeit a bit different considering age differences of those brothers to my brother and me I romped through woods with my fly reel looking for a perfect place to not only fish for fishing was really a secondary prize but also to seek a silence that is only offered in the most remote of locales Perhaps my sentimentality about ths book has taken me captive with age and time But that is okay Boss if you re reading this I miss you Always remember that I ll be here Waiting Thinking Hoping for your arrival HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION Abandoning for now Probably ust not the right time I read this book for a third time on assignment from a class I m auditing at the University of Colorado a class taught by Patricia Limerick of the Center of the American West The story is iconic western literatureHere we read in novella format the essentially autobiographical story of the author s painful memories of his relationship with his beloved brother who lives on in his consciousness as the Mic.
