Product description

Review

"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)

"Few are the works of literature which can successfully capture the essence of a sport. With this soulful and reflective work, much-lauded American novelist, Thomas McGuane has surely created a modern classic" (Scotland on Sunday)

"It's a meaty book and an uplifting one, dazzlingly 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, so I'd be a proud man if I could write a book half as good as this" (Financial Times)

"Writing to die for" (Dailiy Mail)

Book Description

Widely hailed as one of the best fishing books ever to be published, The Longest Silence is a book that has firmly established a place for itself amongst the classics of the genre.
