Editorial Reviews

Robert Wilson
Vintage McGuane: the same strong, clear prose, the same sense of the comic and the absurd, the same romantic awe of women...funny, invigorating, thoughtful...it's as good as any novel I've read of his, including his manic The Bushwacked Piano. -- USA Today
Howard Mossinger
Nobody writes so well about the incongruities of modern western America...Something to be Desired is as invigorating as a fresh whiff of sage straight off Thomas McGuane's Montana uplands, and a welcome relief from the overly wrought and overly cautious of so many of his contemporaries. -- Chicago Tribune Book Review
