The Last Picture Show (McMurtry)

I knew about McMurtry but had never read any of his books (or seen any of the movie versions). My brother sent me an article about him, and since I didn’t have time or space for Lonesome Dove, I tried this one. It is desolate – the characters, their relationships, the setting. Good writing. Spare, like the landscape of the story. I am now certainly curious about the movie. And I will, when I have time, read Lonesome Dove.
