Trout Quintet: Five Stories of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Fly Fishing by Steve Raymond (Skyhorse) 4.6 Stars (6 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

This is a new book from the Pacific Northwest's finest angling writer. There is an abundance of literature on the pleasure and wonder of fly fishing. The themes are familiar and well traveled: ruminations on aging and the passage of time; musings on marriage and balancing the love of friends and families with that of fishing; reflections on the need for companionship versus the quiet beauty and solitude of fly fishing. Now, Steve Raymond takes these well-explored subjects and views them through the lens of fiction. With flowing prose, the five stories in Trout Quintet touch on some of the more salient topics that the flyfisherman faces, from the problem of overfishing to the sometimes nonsensical rules that anglers must contend with. From the story of a dying man who comes back to life as a rainbow trout to the tale of a young boy and his lucky hat, Trout Quintet is a refreshing evocation of the sport that so many women and men love.

The Mystified Magistrate: And Other Tales by Marquis de Sade (Arcade) 4.4 Stars (7 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

The Marquis de Sade is known variously to history as “the Divine Marquis" (the Surrealists) and “that monster author" (Napoleon)because of the daring originality and scandalous nature of much of his writing. What is less known, or virtually forgotten, is that he also possessed a dark but undeniable sense of humor. Visible in even his most outrageous and somber publications, it burst into full bloom in his shorter works of fiction. The great virtue of this volume is that it reveals that lighter, comic side of Sade. He was a man obsessed, like many great writers, and his obsessions are still present here: his hatred of all things pretentious, his loathing of a corrupt judicial system, his damning of hypocrisy and false piety. One of the great anarchists of all time, he was nevertheless far from mad (as many pretended) and these works of fiction shed another light on this most feverish of minds. But however heavy the subject, The Mystified Magistrate is infused with a light touch; it ...
