A River Runs Through It and Other Stories | [Norman Maclean]

A River Runs Through It and Other Stories

In A River Runs Through It, Norman Maclean claims that “in my family, there is no clear line between religion and fly-fishing.” Nor is there a clear line between family and fly-fishing. It is the one activity where brother can connect with brother and father with son, bridging troubled relationships at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana. In Maclean’s autobiographical novella, it is the river that makes them realize that life continues and all things are related.

Publisher's Summary

In A River Runs Through It, Norman Maclean claims that “in my family, there is no clear line between religion and fly-fishing.” Nor is there a clear line between family and fly-fishing. It is the one activity where brother can connect with brother and father with son, bridging troubled relationships at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana. In Maclean’s autobiographical novella, it is the river that makes them realize that life continues and all things are related.

Just as Norman Maclean writes at the end of A River Runs Through It that he is “haunted by waters,” so have readers been haunted by his novella. A retired English professor who began writing fiction at the age of 70, Maclean produced what is now recognized as one of the classic American stories of the 20th century.

Here, with "A River Runs Through It", are two Norman Maclean stories never before on audio:

  • Logging and Pimping and “Your Pal, Jim”
  • USFS 1919: The Ranger, the Cook, and a Hole in the Sky

    Story
    "Loved the Movie- and the Short Story is Better!"

    The central short story, "A River Runs Through it"- deals with the themes of love, family, obligation, and the huge challenge of what it is that we can and can't do on behalf of those that we love. Of course, fly fishing is also mentioned a time or two. :)

    I loved this and I glad I found it. The themes are timeless and really resonated with me. I can't imagine anybody not thoroughly enjoying these stories.

    "Enjoyable Read"
    If you could sum up A River Runs Through It and Other Stories in three words, what would they be?

    I enjoyed learning the nuances of fly fishing while listening to an interesting drama, good realistic balance of storytelling.
