Nothing But Blue Skies by Thomas McGuane is one of those books you live in and which you don’t want to end.
Set in Montana in the 1990s, it’s a sad story of a middle-age man disintegrating after his wife leaves him. He neglects his businesses, occasionally creating havoc as his despair increases. Sometimes, crude and very funny, I didn’t want to leave Frank and his struggles.
Wonderfully written and with terrific dialogue, this is probably a middle-aged man’s book. Highly recommended.
