A Fishing Novel: Brook Trout and the Writing Life

Author Craig Nova intermingles tales of fishing, family and writing in Brook Trout and the Writing Life. This exceptional book will appeal to anglers, fathers, daughters, writers, and readers of outdoor adventures.

Described in the book are the rivers and streams of  New England, with fishing for brook trout being the central theme. The author began Brook Trout and the Writing Life as a letter to his children, but it soon became an essay on American family life in the modern age.

Craig Nova is the award-winning author of twelve novels, including The Good Son, Cruisers, The Congressman’s Daughter, Trombone, and most recently, The Informer, published by Shaye Areheart Books. His writing has appeared in Esquire, The Paris Review, The New York Times Magazine, and Men’s Journal, among other publications.
