Patrick Fitzpatrick is a former soldier, a fourth-generation cowboy, and a whiskey addict. His grandfather wants to run away to act in movies, his sister wants to burn the house down, and his new stallion is bent on killing him: all of them urgently require attention. But increasingly Patrick himself is spiraling out of control, into that region of romantic misadventure and vanishing possibilities that is Thomas McGuane's Montana. Nowhere has McGuane mapped that territory more precisely -- or with such tenderhearted lunacy -- than in Nobody's Angel, a novel that places him in a genre of his own.
From the Publisher:
A novel set on a Montana ranch featuring a former tank captain and sometime whiskey addict.
Annotation:
Patrick Fitzpatrick comes from a long line of Montana cowboys, and when his life goes off the rails, he gets no help from his disturbed (and possibly pyromaniac) sister or his movie-mad grandfather.
Author Bio
Thomas McGuane
Thomas McGuane III's parents disapproved of his writing career, but he attended Michigan State University with Jim Harrison and William Hjortsberg and there received encouragement. He received an M.F.A. from Yale University. In 1962 he married Portia Rebecca Crockett; they had a son, Thomas Francis McGuane IV. By his 30s, McGuane had published three novels and seen much literary success, but after an auto accident, he began to feel as if he'd missed out on life while dedicating himself so thoroughly to art. He and singer Jimmy Buffett began to live somewhat hedonistically; when he directed NINETY-TWO IN THE SHADE, he became involved with the actress Margot Kidder, while his wife became involved with Peter Fonda. McGuane married Kidder, and his wife married Fonda. McGuane and Kidder had a daughter, Maggie, and were divorced in 1977. Ultimately, McGuane's life stabilized after he married Jimmy Buffett's sister Laurie in 1977.

Praise

New York Times
"Both the author's affection, for his characters and the strength of his narrative seem to matter even more to him than his compulsion to be stylistically 'original'." - Christopher Lehmann-Haupt

New York Times Book Review
"What stamps this as a McGuane novel are the bizarre episodes he invents for his character and the wit with which he reports them; what is new...is a depth of feeling....[McGuane's] best book so far." - Vance Bourjaily 03/07/1982

National Review
"[C]redibility was never McGuane's suit and [this book]fairly soars in its stunning preposterousness....For the first time McGuane has created a character who seems to have a life beyond his clutches. Indeed, he has created three of them....McGuane is a monstrous talent." - Jeffrey Broderick 06/11/1982
