Review:

"The Shooting Party is a lovely piece of writing, in which subtlety, irony, and close observation abound." -- Larry McMurtry

"Poised, wry, lovable, informative . . . An utterly complete rendering of a way of life." --Gail Godwin, author of "Queen of the Underworld"

"A beautifully crafted novel, remarkably visual and evocative. The characters are caught in stunning images and tableaux that convey the essence of their natures, the sweep of their emotions." --"The Washington Post"

""The Shooting Party" is a lovely piece of writing, in which subtlety, irony, and close observation abound." --Larry McMurtry
