For more than four decades, Thomas McGuane has been heralded as an unrivaled master of the short story. Set in locales ranging from Key West and the Bahamas to his beloved Montana, these 45 stories of familial dysfunction, emotional breakthroughs, and American loneliness include two new and six previously uncollected pieces. Among the selections here are "Sportsmen," "North Country," "The House on Sand Creek," "An Old Man Who Liked to Fish," and "Ghost Riders in the Sky."
"[This collection] is clearly the product of a life's worth of thought and feeling and experience; it ought to be savored." —NYTBR
