We’d all rather be fishing than doing anything else. But if you can’t do it, then reading about it is the next best thing. The Longest Silence is one of the best fishing trips I’ve had this year. “ Jeremy Paxman, Daily Telegraph.“Thomas McGuane, much-lauded American novelist, has spent over 50 years in pursuit of the catch and in the course of 33 short, dreamily episodic essays he succeeds in capturing the sometimes spiritual, sometimes challenging, occasionally amusing and more often than not enchanting world of the whenever-possible angler. Few are the works of literature which can successfully capture the essence of a sport. With this soulful and reflective work McGuane has surely created a modern classic” Scotland on Sunday“It is a meaty book, and an uplifting one, dazzling well-written. Just as I’d be a proud angler if I could catch specimens half as big as his 25lb sea trout from the Rio Grande, or his 18lb steelhead form the Dean, so I’d be a proud man if I could write a book half as good as this.” Financial Times “Writing to die for” Daily Mail
