Brook Trout And The Writing Life by Craig Nova is an unusual fishing book, in that it isn't about fishing for trophies or food or enlightenment, and unusual, too, in its quiet elegance. In Mr. Nova's hands, fishing reveals a life in which fishing connects the parts. It becomes a means of getting at qualities of the natural world that consciousness grasps but can't quite express. This is a short book that gives long, lingering pleasure.

Craig Nova is the author of nine novels, which have been widely praised and translated. He has received an Award in Literature from the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters and is the recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship. Recently, he has been working on a film adaptation of his acclaimed nove The Good Soon.
