(Description) Book clean and tight. Jacket has notable crease across back with two small chips missing. ***(Synopsis) A gigantic one-eyed trout. A prodigy of the species. A fish to make all other trout seem mere minnows. William Humphrey, the distinguished author of Home from the Hill, Farther Off from Heaven, and that delicious angling classic, The Spawning Run, spotted such a fish in a small Berkshire Mountains creek, in Melville country, and determined he must catch it."I had not lost a leg to him’ he says, "but he had certainly taken a big bite of my brain." The result is a richly humorous, detailed, and perceptive account of the season-long pursuit as only a gifted novelist could tell it. My Moby Dick is a graphic and meditative look at the passionate angler caught helpless - or nearly so - in his quarry’s thrall.
