Patrick F. McManus has spent the last three decades being funny. In 1982, after a fifteen-year stint amusing the readers of Field and Stream, he moved to Outdoor Life, while still finding the time to write twelve books and two plays. He divides his time between Spokane, Washington, and the wilds of Idaho.
Patrick McManus believes that life's eternal truths exist solely for the purpose of being overturned and proved incorrect. In McManus's world, nothing is what it should be. All steaks should be chicken-fried, strong coffee is drunk by the light of a campfire, and fishing trips consist of men acting like boys and boys behaving like the small animals we've always assumed they were. Into the Twilight, Endlessly Grousing
is a hilarious collection from one of the greatest contemporary humorists: Dave Barry or Garrison Keillor with a twist of Mark Twain. In these adventures, McManus offers wry observations about small-town life and curmudgeonly insists on bigger and bigger fish stories.
