Incts and a reputation for homicide Out of their deadly rivalry Thomas McGuane has constructed a novel with the impetus of a thriller and the heartbroken humor that is his distinct contribution to American pros. I emailed my favorite writer from Rolling Stone and praised his penchant for oddly long and detailed list like sentences he thanked me but said he d cribbed the idea from this book So the stylized writing is both what drew me to this book and what sticks with me afterwardsThe fuselage a remnant of a crash landed navy reconnaissance plane rested logically on a concrete form and had by now in the uick tropical growing seasons become impressively laced with strangler fig a plant whose power was now slowly buckling the riveted aluminum panels bougainvillea Confederate star jasmine and a delicate form of trumpeter vine whose blue translucent blossoms cascaded around the compression sealed aerodynamic doorway p 23 24Akin to an impressionistic painting transmission of a specific form and feeling is salient here than capturing flat realism The plot revolving around a fishing boat guide the threat upon his life from a rival and his off beat family tree seems important primarily for its absurdity Existential dread and mordant humor pervade making the book feel like Waiting for Godot if it had been written by Hunter S

Plans to become a skiff guide in the shining blue subtropical waters place him on a collision course with Nichol Dance who Two in the PDF #204 has risen to the crest of the profession by dint of infallible inst. As a former Key West resident and book store worker this book was recommended to me countless times and the fact that I hadn t read was often regarded as some sort of island blasphemy So now that I ve been away from this locale for six months I decided to revisit it through this classic novel hoping the veil of nostalgia would help propel me through what always seemed like not my kind of book And the veil certainly helped as the most fascinating part of the story for me was the vivid way McGuane was able to capture the island culture and people both native and freshwater as transplants to the island are called Key West is an interesting place as its inhabitants usually place way of life over career in their priorities and this clash with the American way is what fills most of the interior of this novel as our protagonist Thomas Skelton returns home to start over as a fishing guide after a brief attempt at academia His plans interfere with another guide s Nichol Dance and the tension between these two is what propels the thin plot The rest of the book is filled with Skelton s meandering thoughts about life and death as he interacts with locals his girlfriend and his family all of whom disagree with his current path I say meanders because the book is a slow read with McGuane s obvious intellect often obscuring his insights and often coming across as condescension It s not until the last uarter of the novel as parallels begin to arise between Skelton s his father s and his grandfather s choices in life and McGuane ratchets up the stakes between Skelton and Dance that the book really takes off and glides into its beautiful ending

    I watched a film based on this book around 10 years ago It was on a video CD without subtitles I did not understand all of it But I thought it was really charming I liked the ensemble cast and the amazing background score I kept postponing reading the book due to sheer laziness but ordered it on Book finder recen

    This is an inane story set deep in the drug and alcohol induced slime that apparently was all there was to Key West in decades thankfully long past The plot is not interesting the vulgarity is disgusting there are many irrelevant asides the ending is not fulfilling Yet all of it is beautifully sometimes breathtakingly written a single redeeming virtue that makes the book worth reading if you put aside its faults slow

    A difficult read and ultimately not worth the time spent That said I liked the Gallatin Canyon stories and as this was reported to be a another good one by McGuane I read it The tangents the many words I had to look up the existential angst of the characters the insider references to Key West life I've lived in FL almost 30 yrs but didn't have a clue it was all just too much Another reviewer said 'written on drugs' that

    The worst book I've read in years Same way I feel about an author like Pynchon He doesn't write about people and the characters are unbelievable but still somehow not at all intriguing Get the sense that I'm supposed to be impressed by the glib tone and the attempts at dimestore philosophy in the mouths of its actors because that's
