This copy of "The Patch" has been SIGNED by John McPhee on the half-title page! The seventh collection of essays by the non-fiction master, John McPhee. It is divided into two parts. The first, "The Sporting Scene," offers previously uncollected pieces on fishing, football, golf, and lacrosse, among other topics. The second part, "An Album Quilt," weaves together fragments of varying length that were written across the years and have never appeared in book form--occasional pieces, memorial pieces, reflections, reminiscences, and short items in various magazines, including "The New Yorker." Starting with 250,000 words, he gradually threw out 75% of them, and randomly sequenced the remaining fragments into an assemblage that is also, among other things, a covert memoir.
