New Column at Salon: Jim Harrison’s Blueprint for Pleasure

In my new column at Salon, I continue to explore my love and enthusiasm for the magnificent work of the late and great Jim Harrison.

Harrison’s new book, a posthumous collection of essays on food, wine, pleasure, and art, acts as a manifesto for Epicurean hedonism. It is a joy to read, but also subversive in a largely Puritanical culture.

Read the column.

I have previously written about Harrison for Salon, the Daily Beast, and this website. Read my past essays.
