When Howell Raines lost his position as executive editor of The New York Times, he discovered that losing his job was just what he needed, and wanted. In this memoir, The One That Got Away, Raines writes about the unpredictability of luck, love, lies, and life. The central metaphor is that of catch and release: the idea that letting go and moving forward is at the heart of fishing, career, and life. Shifting between fishing vignettes and personal stories, Raines uses his most thrilling angling adventures to reflect on the changing relationships in his life.More
"With extraordinary grace, Raines explores some missteps that have haunted him so long....Raines' writing is poetry to all of us." (Booklist)
