CROW FAIR: STORIES From one of our most deeply admired storytellers, author of the richly acclaimed Gallatin Canyon, his first collection in nine years.Set in Thomas McGuanes accustomed Big Sky country, with its mesmeric powers, these stories attest to the generous compass of his fellow feeling, as well as to his unique way with words and the comic genius that has inspired comparison with Twain and Gogol. The ties of family make for uncomfortable binds: A devoted son is horrified to discover his mothers antics before she slipped into dementia. A fathers outdoor skills are no match for an ominous change in the weather. But complications arise equally in the absence of blood, as when lifelong friends on a fishing trip finally confront their deep dislike for each other. Or when a gifted traveling cattle breeder succumbs to the lure of a strangers offer of easy money. McGuane is as witty and large-hearted as we have ever known hima jubilant, thunderous confirmation of his status as a modern master. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Thomas McGuane lives in McLeod, Montana. In addition to his fiction, he is the author of An Outside Chance, a collection that included some of these essays.McGuane's novels The Sporting Club, The Bushwhacked Piano, Ninety-two in the Shade, Panama, Nobody's Angel, Something to Be Desired, Keep the Change, and Nothing but Blue Skies, and his collection of stories, To Skin a Cat, are available in Vintage paperback.
