Have you ever Googled an ex? Have you ever wondered what happened to the first, the truest and/or the greatest love of your life? Have you ever wanted to sit down with that person and ask: How often, if ever, do you think of me (and in what context)? Do you have any regrets? What do you think would have happened if we ended up together? Were we soul mates? If so, how could you move on to someone else so quickly, so easily and painlessly with someone else? Have you ever considered how that person would respond if and when you did contact (let's say) her today? With dismissive laughter? A restraining order? Tears of joy? Lee Robert Schreiber has not been with the purported love of his life since they broke up 25 years ago (primarily because he could not commit to marriage). He's not precisely sure how encountering her after all this time will bring him closer to, well, closure, but he's tried everything else: long-term relationships; one-night stands; friends of friends; friends of relatives; relatives of friends; friends; relatives; therapy; analysis; recreational medication; professional medication; how-to seminars; self-help literature. And none of it, none of them has brought him close to the depths of affection and intimacy that he felt for this one young girl way back when. Pathetic or Romantic? You make the call. Schreiber made the call (actually he emailed her). This is his (and her) poignant, often hilarious and absolutely true story.

"Lost fish," writes Howell Raines, "chasten us to the knowledge that we are all, in each and every moment, dwindling. Imagine my surprise when I discovered well into my sixth decade that losing fish can prepare us for a blessing as well as for pain." Confronting loss -- of an elusive fish or something larger -- is at the heart of The One That Got Away, the graceful sequel to Raines's much-loved, bestselling memoir Fly Fishing Through the Midlife Crisis, published to great acclaim in 1993. With the same winning combination of reminiscences, anecdotes, philosophy and fishing lore, his bold new memoir covers the eventful years in this latest passage of his life, and the realization that in relinquishing his former identity as a newspaperman he has actually gotten what he wanted, just in the most unlikely way. In wry and witty prose, Raines shifts between fishing vignettes and personal reflections on his childhood, his second marriage, his relationships with his two sons, the trajectory of his career at The New York Times and his move toward old age. At the center of his narrative is his most thrilling fishing adventure -- an epic battle with a marlin he hooked and fought for more than seven hours in the South Pacific -- which comes to symbolize his growing understanding and acceptance of the unpredictability of luck, love, lies and life, and how the unexpected can, in fact, be an opportunity to make life more interesting. Raines's wonderful descriptions of streams, people and fish; his passion for angling and writing; and his wise and perceptive commentary on the vagaries of his own life combine to create a profound book -- one of undeniable appeal and uncommon heart.
