Peter Kaminsky (Author)
Available

Description

"Kaminsky makes flyfishing sound like a form of sanctifying grace, and his writing style is as lyrical and lovely as his sport." --Pat Conroy The Moon Pulled Up an Acre of Bass is the story of a man's love affair with Montauk in the fall, after the crowds and celebrities have left eastern Long Island. Now in paperback, this is the story of an ocean teeming with life, and the people drawn to it: obsessed anglers, jealous guides, dedicated scientists, and the local people who have lived off the bounty of these waters for generations. But above all it is a story of a man's basic love of people and nature, one that will appeal to the many fans of Kaminsky's "Outdoors" column in the New York Times, his frequent work in Food & Wine, and anyone hungering for fine writing.
