Description


Thomas McGuane's high-spirited and fiercely lyrical new novel chronicles the fall and rise of Frank Copenhaver, a man so unhinged by his wife's departure that he finds himself ruining his business, falling in love with the wrong women, and wandering the lawns of his neighborhood, desperate for the merest glimpse of normalcy.

The result is a ruefully funny novel of embattled manhood, set in the country that McGuane has made his own: a Montana where cowboys slug it out with speculators, a cattleman's best friend may be his insurance broker, and love and fishing are the only consolations that last.

Praise For…


"Vibrant with the pleasures of ironic language, play and chase, and quick with broken-hearted humor...I've never been so moved to admire [McGuane's] work as in this story."

-- William Kittredge,

Los Angeles Times Book Review

"Nothing but Blue Skies is nothing but enjoyable." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"McGuane's prose is so dazzlingly acute and seemingly effortless that it infuses Nothing but Blue Skies with exuberance and wit." -- Chicago Tribune.
