"The Finest Fishing Novel Ever Written"

In Canada’s Globe and Mail, Paul Quarrington revisits what he calls the best fishing novel ever written, Thomas McGuane’s Ninety-Two In the Shade. “Every page of Ninety-two in the Shade offers at least one immaculately turned phrase. On page 99 (in the Vintage Contemporaries Edition), he describes a heavy drinker as ‘spavined in the morals,’ an exemplary McGuane-ism, as it combines fussy word choice with a winking affection for the liquor-whipped.”
