Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Fisher in the Rye"

    If you're wondering what ever happened to Holden Caufield, here's your answer. He's still living in New York, still exposing phonies, and he's taken up fly fishing as psychiatric therapy. This second volume of the cathartic journeys of an ex-NY Times editor is a snoozer. Best to let this one get away.
