Gallatin Canyon
By

Rating
The stories of "Gallatin Canyon "are rich in the wit, compassion, and matchless language for which Thomas McGuane is celebrated.
Place exerts the power of destiny in these tales: a boy makes a surprising discovery skating at night on Lake Michigan; an Irish clan in Massachusetts gather around their dying matriarch; a battered survivor of the glory days of Key West washes up on other shores. Several of the stories unfold in Big Sky country: a father tries to buy his adult son's way out of virginity; a convict turns cowhand on a ranch; a couple makes a fateful drive through a perilous gorge. McGuane's people are seekers, beguiled by the land's beauty and myth, compelled by the fantasy of what a locale can offer, forced to reconcile dream and truth.

Reviews

"Tremendous. . . . [McGuane] evokes characters so vivid and universally pained that they'll keep you up at night." --The Philadelphia Inquirer "Astonishing. . . . [McGuane] knows something about writing, real writing-which is to say, words as access to the soul. . . . McGuane has driven so hard into the heart of a received wisdom concerning American manhood . . . that he has broken through to the other side." --The New York Times Book Review "McGuane is a master. . . . To see the world through the eyes of his characters . . . is to feel unsettled, precarious, and yet certain . . . of one thing: change. . . . [He] turns each story into a kind of pressure cooker." --Los Angeles Times
