Product description

From the Inside Flap

Their plans were conceived in a drunken excitement and resulted in more horror than any of them could have imagined. There was the poet able to retreat into beatific reveries of superb fishing in cold, fast streams; the Vietnam vet consumed by uppers, downers and violence; and the girl who loved only one of them -- at first. With their ideals ostensibly in order, they set out from Florida to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believed was being built. Along with the tapedeck for the car, the liquor and the drugs, there was also a case of dynamite. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

They were an unlikely trio: a poet with a tendency to lapse into beatific reveries of superb fishing in cold, fast streams, a Vietnam veteran consumed by uppers, downers and violence and a girl who loved only one of them – at first. With plans conceived during the madness of one long drunken night, the three of them leave Florida, driving west to buy a case of dynamite, determined to save the Grand Canyon from a dam they believe is about to be built. 'A Good Day to Die', Harrison's second work of fiction, is an unrelenting 'tour de force'; a dark exploration of what it means to live beyond the pale in contemporary America.

"A writer with immortality in him."
BERNARD LEVIN

"I found myself racing along, utterly caught up in the momentum of the story and eager to find out how it would turn out … Mr Harrison's perceptions are jagged and cutting … a remarkably well-plotted story."
NEW YORK TIMES

"Beneath his beautiful, deceptively simple language lie deeper truths than can only be hinted at with words."
PUBLISHERS' WEEKLY

"'A Good Day to Die' speaks with absolute accuracy to and about its generation."
MARGARET ATWOOD

Also available in Flamingo: 'Wolf, Legends of the Fall, The Woman Lit by Fireflies'.
