The Longest Silence
Thomas McGuane

At times, McGuane’s real life reads like a fiction novel. Hollywoods affairs, wrecks in the Porsche, a number of failed marriages, successful screenplays with Jack Nicholson and Marlon Brando–and that’s not even why I’m writing about him. All the while, McGuane seemed to find the time to wet a line. In 33 essays, McGuane takes us around the world pursuing fish and life in The Longest Silence.
