This is a new, not-yet-released version of the too-short original (the publicist told me it was 1/3 longer than the first version, published in 1999 by Lyons Press).

While the writing is fine here, it is mostly about fishing and not so much about writing, and not very much at all about Nova himself. I was kinda hoping for more of a "memoir." I didn't get it. The truth is I suspect even anglers would be disappointed in this too brief book. While the style is quite personal, the content is not.

I first 'discovered' Nova years ago when I read THE GOOD SON. Liked it so much I read a couple of his previous novels, including TURKEY HASH, which I also liked. So I was curious to learn more about the author. Unfortunately BROOK TROUT didn't give much away. Nope. Something of a disappointment. ( )
