Author Info
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
"This is a fine little book....What a light, clean touch Tom McGuane has in writing about worlds he loves."
"It is a small world..., but novelist McGuane invests it with such urgent purpose and unimagined beauty, even the most horse-shy will feel the pull of its attraction."
