Boston Herald Larry McMurtry is one of American literature's native treasures.
Southwestern American Literature Richly suggestive. All My Friends Are Going to Be Strangers is a document for our times.
The New York Times Book Review Mr. McMurtry's characters are real, believable, and touching...and he is a very funny writer.

Amidst the process and the search, we find many funny characters such as Uncle Laredo known as Uncle L, his wife Martha, a cantankerous lady who loves goats, and old man Lorenzo. Danny takes all these people in stride without much emotional response and continues his journey which ultimately is his own mental and social decline. While the book has an eerie sadness that seems to accompany each page, we still find ourselves rooting for Danny to get himself together and write another book.
McMurtry's style of using events and characters to define the essence of the story and outline its purpose makes for a smooth and powerful approach to writing. In this case, the sorrow of Danny's life blends with poor judgment to create a memorable character with no future. A rather depressing book, with few redeeming human qualities demonstrated, All My Friends reminds us of the bleak emotions that often bubble beneath the surface of our human facade.Read more ›

This is, as you might guess, a character driven book. There is no quest, the settings are described only well enough to be the backdrop in front of which the story takes place. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Shawn Stewart
