9780395545409: Nothing But Blue Skies

Frank has always been one step ahead of the game: Successful in business, lucky in love, he's built a financial empire and managed to have fun along the way. He's raised a daughter who's as sensible as she is delightful, he still has time to go fishing, and his life seems as bright and clear as the big sky of Montana. But when love goes wrong, he becomes an American hero on the run from his own life.

From the Inside Flap:

Thomas McGuane's high-spirited and fiercely lyrical new novel chronicles the fall and rise of Frank Copenhaver, a man so unhinged by his wife's departure that he finds himself ruining his business, falling in love with the wrong women, and wandering the lawns of his neighborhood, desperate for the merest glimpse of normalcy.

The result is a ruefully funny novel of embattled manhood, set in the country that McGuane has made his own: a Montana where cowboys slug it out with speculators, a cattleman's best friend may be his insurance broker, and love and fishing are the only consolations that last.

From the Back Cover:

"Vibrant with the pleasures of ironic language, play and chase, and quick with broken-hearted humor...I've never been so moved to admire [McGuane's] work as in this story."

-- William Kittredge,

Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Nothing but Blue Skies is nothing but enjoyable." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"McGuane's prose is so dazzlingly acute and seemingly effortless that it infuses Nothing but Blue Skies with exuberance and wit." -- Chicago Tribune.
