fact: jim harrison can sleep comfortably in the bottom of a driftboat

You won't find that fact in this piece, but they are, nonetheless, doing good work at New West, a web mag devoted to... well, the west. We recently linked to a Thom McGuane interview and now, we link to a profile of Jim Harrison. Not too shabby!
Money Quote:
Harrison is slightly walleyed. Shaking his hand, if you want to look him in the eye you're not quite sure how to go about it. "My left eye is blind and jogs / like a milky sparrow in its socket...the front teeth, bucked, / but not in lechery – I sucked / my thumb until the age of twelve." Pushing seventy now, he's missing a tooth or two and his hair recalls a dandelion gone to seed, two-thirds blown clean. A man who has devoted his life to the artful and moving presentation of words on a page, the perfect reduction of emotion into a sentence or two, his own upkeep has apparently received less attention.
