Book Description Farrar Straus & Giroux, New York, 1973. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition, First Printing. Bindings tight and square. Text clean, light even toning. Moderate handling wear with sun-fading to top edge. Two small spots on lower text-block. Dust Jacket with price is in a new clear protective Mylar sleeve has a bit of darkening to white of jacket with no chips or tears. ----- The author¿s third novel. McGuane's writing is noted for its mastery of language (particularly the early novels), a comic appreciation for the irrational core of many human endeavors, multiple takes on the counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s, and an increasing devotion to family relationships and relationships with the natural world in the changing American West, primarily Montana, where he has made his home since 1968, and where his last five novels and many of his essays are set. ----- Ninety-Two in the Shade is set in the Florida Keys where young Tom Skelton who ""required a sense of mortality"" has gotten his shaky self together to the point of deciding that he wants to become a fishing guide. There's one great shaggy big fish story and you won't need to be reminded that this is Hemingway country, with a vast metaphysical difference. ----- McGuane is very much his own man stalking his own kind of truth, and part of the inordinate vitality of the novel derives from the fact that life and death are the same process. A talent hard to define or confine -- it just is. Kirkus --- Laid-in NYT full-page book review. Seller Inventory # 009824
