This is a story — short, poetic, and powerful — about a man and a bear. That they are destined to meet, the reader senses quickly. What happens along their curiously twisted paths as they move slowly toward each other is not so easily foretold. The man is a banker and a hunter, the bear is hunted and homeless. Here are brilliant portraits of the two: an animal who lives first by scent and finds the alien landscape harsh and inhospitable; a man who lives by money and guns and is starting to suspect that the pursuit of alien flesh can no longer be considered a “hobby.” The Last Hunt concerns a larger fatality: the death of the forest. It speaks to fear, hunger, questions of greed and politics and the future, and the bestiality (and submerged, suppressed sexuality) of individuals and — perhaps — nations. This is for the reader who appreciates the unexpected; for those who care about animals and the environment; and for those who enjoy compelling short fiction.
