9780345302717: Nobody's Angel

Patrick Fitzpatrick is a former soldier, a fourth-generation cowboy, and a whiskey addict. His grandfather wants to run away to act in movies, his sister wants to burn the house down, and his new stallion is bent on killing him: all of them urgently require attention. But increasingly Patrick himself is spiraling out of control, into that region of romantic misadventure and vanishing possibilities that is Thomas McGuane's Montana. Nowhere has McGuane mapped that territory more precisely -- or with such tenderhearted lunacy -- than in Nobody's Angel, a novel that places him in a genre of his own.

From the Back Cover:

"A novel of considerable compassion, strength, and resonance, from an author who's among the most arresting and fascinating of his generation."-- San Francisco Chronicle

"A masterpiece ... arguably one of the best serious novels of recent times, [with] a mastery of style and invention, delighting the reader with [McGuane's] pure command of the language." -- Indianapolis News

"McGuane's prose is witty and evocative.... Montana is to McGuane what Yoknapatawpha County was to Faulkner, a mythic place of discovery. This is a rewarding book, full of small truths." -- People

About the Author:
