Reviews

  • "Marvellous... Muscular, idiomatic and shot with unexpected humour, each is a portrait of flummoxed masculinity"

    Observer
  • "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
  • "It is the skill with which McGuane zeros huge cultural movements down to small flights of character that makes him one of the funniest and most acute American novelists"

    Guardian
  • "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"
