This review is from: One Who Walked Alone: Robert E. Howard the Final Years (Hardcover)
I loved this book! Although not too much actually happenes - the action is mostly Novalyne and Bob driving around talking - I was swept up by the story.
It captures the texture and difficulty of West Texas perfectly. It is full of powerful ideas on the writing life. It is a bittersweet doomed love story.
Be sure and see "The Whole Wide World" - an excellent film adaptation of this novel. The book and the movie complement each other, they are even better together than apart.
