About this author

__I am a writer and a reader.
__I have lived with my wife through her recurrent cancer, and have shared with her the joy--post cancer--of walking 3,000 miles along the Continental Divide.
__I express myself best in writing, though friends will tell you that I am hard to shut up.
__I have special love of a special place, Montana.
__I have never experienced writer's block.

I did not find this book nearly as interesting as Stein's THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN, which I thought was a near masterpiece. Though Stein describes his ties to both the Tlingit culture and SE Alaska, I didn't find his descriptions of the Wrangell...more

David Quammen is a Bozeman acquaintance (full disclosure). That out of the way, let me be clear I think he is among the finest, if not the finest science writer we have today.

Quammen has the tremendous ability to bring the nuances--often deep nuance...more

message 2: by Scott

Scott Bischke Hey Sharlene,

Thanks for your very kind comments and review. I am honored that you were willing to take the time to both read and honestly review FISH TANK. And I am of course so pleased you resonated with the book.

I do strongly believe it has a message for our society and could help facilitate discussion on issues of limited natural resources, climate change, and how we make political decision. The big challenge, given that this is a one man show(!) is figuring out how to "get it our there". Any ideas that you have would be hugely appreciated.

Again, Sharlene, my thanks and warm regards, Scott


Sharlene Just needed to say thank you for Fish Tank...I can sum it up in two words...Holy Mackeral!!! Loved it! Thanks again!
