11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 1,054 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As his mother's dementia worsens, a devoted, favored son is shocked to learn of his mother's past; a father's meager outdoor skills are no match for a terrifying turn in the weather; old friends holding too many grudges go camping and hire a suicidal guide with too many rules. In several stories, unlikely alliances form: an eccentric neighbor who babysits for a busy, unstable couple becomes overly attached; an accomplished cattle geneticist gets sidetracked by the glamour of a stranger's easy money; an injured ranch owner is charmed by his hired help -- and becomes collateral damage in a classic art world heist. In all, the acuity of McGuane's darkly comic vision is surpassed only by the compassion he manifests for even the rascalliest of his creatures"--

43 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Sporting Club marks the debut of a distinctly American writer with a gift for explosive comedy, and the intelligence and craft of a born novelist. The scene is a venerable hunting and fishing club in the Saginaw country of Michigan during the summer of its centennial celebration. Two young men resume a long-standing and destructive competitive friendship. One is something of a country gentleman recently (and uncertainly) converted to the family business. The other is a baroque American aristocrat, a renegade, given to fits of diabolical energy. Their natural and common antagonists are the eminent descendants of the club's founding fathers, who pride themselves on a weekend devotion to the blood sports and hold the fort against the encroachments of the local riffraff. Into their midst comes a redneck purveyor of fish bait and his friends, a crew of motorcycle hillbillies, leading to a Rabelaisian catastrophe.--Adapted from book jacket

Driving on the rim by Thomas McGuane( )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unforgettable voyager of this dark picaresque is I.B. "Berl" Pickett, MD, whose die was probably cast the moment his mother thought to name him after Irving Berlin. Other insults piled on apace thereafter: the spasms of Pentecostal Sunday worship; the social debilitation of following his parents' itinerant rug-shampooing business; the erotic initiation at the hands of his aunt. It's hard to imagine what would have become of him had he not gone to medical school. But there must be meaning to existence beyond professional accreditation, and though scantly equipped, Berl Pickett has been on a mission to find it, despite being charged with negligent homicide in the death of his former lover, a business that lays bare the true benefits of small-town living
Blood knots : a memoir of fathers, friendship, and fishing by Luke Jennings( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Blood Knots is about angling, about great fish caught and lost, but it is also about friendship, honour and coming of age. As an adult Jennings has sought out lost and secretive waterways, probing waters 'as deep as England' at dead of night in search of giant pike. The quest, as always, is for more than the living quarry. For only by searching far beneath the surface, Jennings suggests in this most moving and thought-provoking of memoirs, can you connect with your own deep history
