Maclean Reader Reviewed

Powell's presents a long, thought-out review of the newly published Norman Maclean Reader, a posthumous collection of the University of Chicago professor's works. The review gives a good idea of what's contained in the collection, which is nice as we're looking forward to reading Maclean's classic A River Runs Through It in February. But be wary if you haven't read the book yet or seen the movie (like me): there's a HUGE plot spoiler smack dab in the middle of the review. (Thanks a lot, Mr. Reviewer...not all of us are in love with Brad Pitt, so don't assume we all know what happens at the end!)
