NINETY-TWO IN THE SHADE

Thomas McGuane
BANTAM (BDD)/RANDOM HOUSE, May 1995
Softcover
ISBN: 0-679-75289-7

Tiring of the company of junkies and burn-outs, Thomas Skelton goes home to Key West to take up a more wholesome life. But things fester in America's utter South. And Skelton's plans to become a skiff guide in the shining blue subtropical waters place him on a collision course with Nichol Dance, who has risen to the crest of the profession by dint of infallible instincts and a reputation for homicide. Out of their deadly rivalry, Thomas McGuane has constructed a novel with the impetus of a thriller and the heartbroken humor that is his distinct contribution to American prose.

6x9 inches, 208 pgs.
