Catch and Release

by Mark Kingwell

This vibrant blend of memoir, travelogue, and reflection on the deep truths of angling is framed around an annual fishing trip that Mark Kingwell and his father and two brothers take each year to British Columbia. Between the drinking, the cigars, and the piloting of a small dingy, Kingwell, previously of the belief that "fishing is stupid," finds that the sport does allow for one important thing -- quite a bit of time just to think, to allow thoughts to wander and new vistas to open up. This realization leads Kingwell, who makes his living as a professor of philosophy, to ponder everything from masculinity and procrastination to golf and the value of work -- not to mention the relative benefits of wet versus dry flies, the cast, and how best to fool a fish. As this book engagingly shows, fishing is worth thinking about because of the thinking that fishing allows. Especially when the trout aren't biting. Book jacket.

Catch as Cat Can (Mrs. Murphy Mystery #10)

by Rita Mae Brown Sneaky Pie Brown

Never have two species co-created a work of such suspense and humorous catitude as the wildly popular mystery series by Rita Mae Brown and Sneaky Pie Brown. This time out, that agile-witted tiger puss Mrs. Murphy makes the round of parties where Virginia's Very Best People mingle with some of the worst. Together, she and her human must unravel a veritable cat's cradle of ambition, greed, and murder at the center of which waits a killer with the most tangled of motives. CATCH AS A CAT CAN Spring has come to the Blue Ridge Mountains, and spring fever to the tiny town of Crozet. As the annual Dogwood Festival approaches, romantic maneuvers are rampant. Even equable postmistress Mary Minor "Harry" Haristeen inadvertently snatches a blind date from under the nose of manhunter Lottie Pearson, the university fundraiser. As for Mrs. Murphy, her interest in the exploding bird population is intensified by Pewter's discovery of a dead rare woodpecker near the back porch. Feline intuition tells her more mysteries lie ahead. And they do. A case of stolen hubcaps seems relatively straightforward until the truck that transported them to the unsuspecting O'Bannon brothers' upscale salvage yard turns out to be completely untraceable. And while everybody deplores the tipsy, raunchy behavior of young mechanic Roger O'Bannon, nobody is sure it accounts for his sudden death over a sobering cup of coffee. But when his brother Sean will not authorize an autopsy and presses on with preparations for the Wrecker's Ball, the climax of the season's junketing, people start to whisper. Then, as violent thunderstorms sweep in from the west to shadow spring festivities, another death occurs-could it be murder? Harry ponders whether the two deaths are connected. And as she and her furry cohorts-the cats Mrs. Murphy and Pewter and corgi Tee Tucker-get mud on their boots and paws mapping local terrain and relationships and sniffing out telltale scents of villainy, someone is watching their every move. When a shooting leads to the discovery of a half-million crisp, clean dollar bills that look to be very dirty, Harry's blood is really up. But by the time she's close to fingering a cold-blooded murderer, Mrs. Murphy already knows who it is-and who's next in line. She also knows that Harry, curious as a cat, does not have nine lives. And the one she does have is hanging by the thinnest of threads.

Catch As Catch Can

by Joseph Heller

Not many writers introduce a phrase - let alone a whole idea - into the language. In CATCH-22, Joseph Heller invented a motif for the modern world. For that book alone he is one of the greatest American writers of the twentieth century. But where did the author who was able to create that novel come from? And what happened to those remarkable characters? CATCH AS CATCH CAN for the first time collects early works, previously unpublished stories and lost chapters of CATCH-22 to chart the development of a genius. It also explores the consequences in the later stories of the unforgettable Yossarian, and Heller's non-fiction pieces, in which the author reflects upon his childhood in Coney Island and the novel which shaped everything that was written after it.

Catch As Catch Can

by Joseph Heller Matthew J. Bruccoli Park Bucker

Long before there was a Catch-22, before there was even a Catch-18 (the novel's original title), Joseph Heller had begun sharpening his skills as a writer, searching for the voice that would best express the peculiarly wry view that he held of the world. Starting in 1945, with the publication in Story magazine of the short story "I Don't Love You Anymore," Heller began to reach out to an audience of readers damaged and disillusioned by their experiences during World War II. That story dealt with the return home of an American soldier who was having more than a little trouble adjusting. The stories published following this debut continued to reflect people at odds with the world around them, usually featuring the "little guy," the "underdog," the "average Joe" who beats the odds by surviving in a generally hostile and unwelcoming world. Written in what is termed the "New York Style," his were stories of urban naturalism, realistic and straightforward, emulating the work of such writers as Irwin Shaw, William Saroyan, John O'Hara, and -- perhaps most especially -- Nelson Algren. For Heller, writing these stories was a part of the learning process, his education on how to get across his own point of view, leading up to the publication of his masterpiece, Catch-22. Of the stories in this collection, thirteen were written before 1961, when Catch-22 was published; of those, five have never before been published. After Catch-22, Heller forsook the short story form. Though five stories were published after 1961, one -- "World Full of Great Cities" -- was actually written in 1949, three of the other four are spin-offs of Catch-22, and one is a preview of Closing Time. Rounding out this collection of the complete published short writings of Joseph Heller are a short play and several nonfiction pieces, mostly related to Catch-22.

Catch Her If You Can

Catch Me

by A. J. Holt

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN. When FBI agent and expert computer hacker Jay Fletcher single-handedly tracked down and killed four serial killers and put one, "Billy Bones," away for life--she was forced to trade in her badge for a new identity. And for a year and a half, Jay convinced herself that her peaceful new life in a quiet coastal town in Northern California was what she needed--until the ruthless Billy Bones escaped, found Jay, and through brazen, threatening e-mails, dared her to catch him--if she could. CATCH ME OR I'LL KILL AGAIN. Jay's remarkable computer skills are only rivaled by Billy's, who remains one step ahead of Jay and Deputy U. S. Marshal Jack Dane as they search for the elusive madman. As Billy continues to travel the country on a grotesquely bloody murder spree--from the nation's capital, to the languid swamps of Louisiana, to a picturesque island in the Puget Sound--he leaves deliberate clues, taunting Jay and Dane in a vicious game of cat and mouse. With the body count rising, Jay is drawn closer and closer to Billy--and that's just where he wants her. For killing is killing but revenge is something altogether different.
