Brook Trout and the Writing Life is an autobiography in which the essential way of giving thanks and of appreciating life is through fishing. From the first brook trout the author catches to the most recent, this book is a paean to the beauty of the fish and an emblem of the good things in life. The brookie is a constant, something that mitigates against the passage of time, defending against events we would like to forget. But, as Nova fishes for them in Maine, New York, and Vermont, they become a graceful embodiment of the important moments in his life -- falling in love, having children, making friends, writing novels. The worlds commingle. His life intertwines with his love of clear brooks and the jewellike brook trout. And while the book explores the best of the author's fishing experiences in all their delicious detail, as well as his giving thanks, it also looks into the darker moments -- as when Nova found himself wearing a bullet-proof vest provided by the F.B.I. Brook Trout and the Writing Life is part autobiography, part fishing literature, all imbued with a sense of the delight and mystery in moving water and wild brookies. This is a gem of a book, by one of America's finest novelists.… (plus d'informations)

This is a new, not-yet-released version of the too-short original (the publicist told me it was 1/3 longer than the first version, published in 1999 by Lyons Press).

While the writing is fine here, it is mostly about fishing and not so much about writing, and not very much at all about Nova himself. I was kinda hoping for more of a "memoir." I didn't get it. The truth is I suspect even anglers would be disappointed in this too brief book. While the style is quite personal, the content is not.

I first 'discovered' Nova years ago when I read THE GOOD SON. Liked it so much I read a couple of his previous novels, including TURKEY HASH, which I also liked. So I was curious to learn more about the author. Unfortunately BROOK TROUT didn't give much away. Nope. Something of a disappointment. ( )
