(From the publisher):
Richard Winslow is in a rut. His wife is leaving him, he drinks too much, his once-acclaimed poetry has sunk into obscurity, and he hasn't written anything worth reading for eighteen months. In truth, he hasn't even tried, The offer of a visiting professorship at a small college in Montana hardly seems like the best way to renew his artistic glory, but with his options and his bank account rapidly dwindling, Winslow makes the move. Once there, he rediscovers the forgotten pleaures of fly-fishing and meets a girl in worse shape than he is.
Erica is a painfully thin student with a dragon tattoed on her neck. She is also sharp, confrontational, and fiercely intelligent. Their relationship, formed over paper cups of Johnnie Walker in Winslow's office, escalates when they impulsively take off on a road trip in Winslow's prized possession, a classic Lincoln Town Car. Traveling through Utah and Arizona, they forge a bond neither anticipated. Winslow, haunted by thoughts of death, begins to embrace the promise of love and life.
