Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0578105225, Paperback)“American BeheMouth” is a timely literary work that depicts American moral equivalencies and excesses. For fishermen, baseball fans, book lovers, sports enthusiasts, and economists alike, the novella is highly entertaining and insightful. Full of true fisheries science and sports history, “American BeheMouth” tells the greatest bass fishing story of all time while giving an insight into what America has become. On the surface, the story is about a literature student and his fisheries biologist girlfriend who raise the world-record bigmouth bass in a Kentucky lake. Underneath, the novella is much more than a fishing story; it is a metaphor for many other things: life, family, sacrifice, commitment, and dreams. In addition, it raises ethical questions about modern American sports, American businesses and consumerism, and our quest for the elusive. “American BeheMouth” is a metaphor for many things that are wrong in American culture, including the relentless pursuit for more, mirroring and predicting the many bubbles in the American economy. In the big picture, the author may be asking all the existential questions while writing about fishing. In all, everyone can glean something from the story with humor and inquisitiveness.
