The Cadence of Grass

by Thomas McGuane

A ruthlessly funny look at life in Montana today. And a must read for anyone with difficult relatives because they can't be as bad as Sunny Jim Whitelaw and his family - can they?


When they were girls, they shared a Labrador retriever named Lucy, whom their father would not allow in the house. Twenty years previous, on Christmas Eve, the then old and silver-muzzled Lucy froze to death under the wreath on the front door. Natalie's heart broke as much for her father as for Lucy, whereas Evelyn concluded he was just one of life's nasty surprises.
