• "The vivid characterisations of his snapshot prose remain startlingly original and exact... Chilling, bleak, and resonant. McGuane is an inventive writer, and a gifted stylist"

  • "I don't know of another writer who can walk Thomas McGuane's literary high wire...He can describe the sky, a bird, a rock, the dawn, with such grace that you want to go see for your self; then he can zip to a scene so funny that it makes you laugh out loud"

    New York Times Book Review
  • "One of America's most important literary writers, whose prose style has been compared to such American sensibilities as Hemingway and Faulkner"

    Los Angeles Herald Examiner
  • "One of the most original American novelists on either side of the Mississippi"
