Synopsis:

Thomas McGuane has made Panama a high-wire act of extravagant emotion and steel-nerved prose. As he haunts Key West, pestering family, threatening a potential in-law with a .38, and attempting to crucify himself on his ex's door out of sheer lovesickness, Chester emerges as the pure archetype of the McGuane hero. Out of his struggle to rejoin the human race--and the imminent possibility that he may die trying--McGuane has fashioned a harrowing and hilarious novel of 'alligators, macadam, the sea, sticky sex, laughter, and sudden death.


Review:

"[McGuane's] most relentlessly honest novel....'Panama' also contains some of the finest writing McGuane has done so far."

Philip Caputo, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Maybe as a result of the [screenwriting] experience, he has added to his store of apprehensions some dismal views of fame and the idea that life is a circus performance....Whatever risk McGuane may have sensed in attempting a fourth novel with a simultaneous plunge into first person narration, the feat proves successful. The audience is left dazzled by the ingenuity of his turn, somewhat aghast at the swagger, hungry for more."

Larry McCaffery
