The Cadence of Grass (Vintage Contemporaries)by Thomas Mcguane
Synopses & Reviews
Sunny Jim Whitelaw, a descendent of pioneers and owner of a large bottling plant, may have died, but he has no intention of relinquishing control: his will specifies that no one gets a cent unless his daughter Evelyn reconciles with her estranged husband, Paul. But Evelyn is a strong-willed woman, fiercely attached to the land, whose horses transport her to a West she feels is disappearing, while Paul is a suave manipulator, without scruples, intent on living well.
As played out on the majestic stage of Montana cattle country, the ensuing drama involves blood, money, sex, vengeance, and a cross-dressing rancher. The Cadence of Grass is renewed evidence that McGuane is one of the finest writers we have, capable of simultaneously burnishing and demolishing the mythology of the West while doing rope tricks with the English language.
A novel of blood, money, sex, and chicanery set in Montana cattle country.
Ten years after his last novel McGuane returns to the form with a sulfurously funny yet genuinely elegiac tale of blood, money, sex, and chicanery set on the majestic stage of Montana cattle country.
