Poet and novelist Jim Harrison discusses his latest novel True North.  Perhaps best known for his novella Legends of the Fall, set in Montana, Harrison discusses the value of place as he begins to imagine a novel.  “You absorb landscapes,” Harrison says, “and then the story follows this absorption.”  He also talks about his poetic collaboration with Ted Kooser, Braided Creek: A Conversation in Poetry.
