The central character in this novel, Thomas Skelton, is a refugee from the world of drug addicts and misfits. He goes home to Key West which itself turns out to be an alien world - torrid, hostile and grotesque. The author has also written "The Sporting Club", "The Bushwacked Piano" and "Panama".

Review:

"Full of surprises and rewards and an exhilaration one feels only rarely.... I offer a gentle exhortation -- please read this book." - Newsday

"Thomas McGuane makes the page, the paragraph, the sentence itself a record of continuous imaginative activity.... He is an important as well as a brilliant novelist." --The New York Times Book Review

"McGuane's sense of place, his harsh and delicate exactness of detail are at their keenest." --Newsweek

"Few writers have explored our national malaise as persistently -- or as elegantly -- as Thomas McGuane, a writer whose command of the language has helped define our American loneliness." --Philadelphia Inquirer
