America's most hilarious sportsman returns with this collection of insights about youth, the great outdoors, and the philosophy of fileting fish. When best-selling author Patrick McManus looks at a subject, you're sure to come away with an outrageously new perspective.

In Muldoon in Love McManus examines how third-grade crushes can have a disastrous effect on show-and-tell. In The Big Fix he explores the insidious relationship between women and flat tires. In What's in a Name, Moonbeam? he welcomes into the world a new grandchi ... er ... a new small relative.

Norman Dietz's droll narration of these and two dozen more adventures by the author of How I Got This Way and The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw will have listeners - and maybe even a wolf or two - howling. Download and start listening now!

    " Amusing rather than funny. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl in CC NV | 12/6/2013

    " Read aloud with my 14 yo son over a period of many weeks. Both of us laughed out loud, even though we are not hunters or even avid campers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terry | 12/4/2013

    " An almost funny collection of short stories concerning hunting and fishing. Recommended by two well read people:Theresa and Zelma. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 wally | 10/31/2013

    " As hilarious as the rest. Could he be funnier? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 9/28/2013

    " A fun summer read. Lots of good humor about a group of guys growing up in a rural area. The situations might be unsophisticated, but the storytelling produced some embarrassing public laughs. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Corn | 8/31/2013

    " One of his best books in my opinion but maybe that is because I have read it a dozen times. This man is funny with great stories of his childhood hunting fishing and the great outdoors. I have a second copy in hardback if anyone is interested in a trade or borrow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tina | 8/23/2013

    " My husband and 10 year old son love these books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Annika | 7/6/2013

    " sooo funny!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eric Outen | 6/29/2013

    " McManus' writing style has always been a bit sophomoric, but his stories are always hilarious. In this collection I really love the story, "Summer Reading," which dictates the rules in choosing a proper summer novel to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eva | 5/16/2013

    " They say laughter is good for the soul. If you need a good laugh (one where you get started and end up rolling on the floor clutching your sides), then you have to read Patrick McManus. In Rubber Legs and White Tail-Hairs is one of my favorite stories, "The Mountain Car." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ki | 5/13/2013

    " Anything by McManus is funny beyond reason and highly recommened. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mechel | 12/6/2012

    " Patrick embellishes on the truth, OK, he totally makes some things up, but anyone who has a son will see some truth to what he writes about. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan Weiss | 12/4/2012

    " Classic McManus... what else is there to say? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 8/1/2012

    " I actually got this in a book swap, otherwise would have never picked it up. Was pretty funny. Lots of little stories, so quick to read. Mainly about silly hunting and fishing stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gena Lott | 5/29/2012
