Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

About the Author

Thomas McGuane lives in Sweet Grass County, Montana. He is the author of eight previous novels and a collection of stories, as well as two collections of essays.

This is one of the best books of our time and McGuane is one of our greatest writers. Nobody's Angel is tragic, hilarious, its characters burst with life. McGuane can turn a phrase like no other in an offhand manner that rings completely true to life. It is truly a magnificent achievement.
