Editorial Reviews

Geoffrey Wolff
A novel of wisecracks and objects invested with legendary potency. -- Newsday
Yargley
The work of a writer of the first magnitude. His sheer writing skill is nothing short of amazing. The preternatural force, grace, and self-control recall Faulkner...McGuane is a virtuoso. -- The New York Times Book Review

What People are saying about this

William Hjortsberg
The Bushwacked Piano makes me think of all foremarks by those of an attenuated tandem bicycle, out of control, the wrong way on a one-way street, against the mainstream of oncoming traffic; no hands, and no brakes! Thomas McGuane can only be imitated. There is no one else around close enough for comparison.
