Editorial Reviews

Review

The Washington Post Satisfying, sure, masterful, heartbreaking, and beautiful. Don't miss it.

Chicago Tribune Deliciously human comedy...An original, touching love story.

The New York Times Book Review Larry McMurtry can write about anything he wants, and most everything that breathes and is literate will beg for more. Mr. McMurtry's prose stands up and kicks fence posts.

Playboy McMurtry has a gift for probing the poignant depths of parent-child relationships, and the emotional roller-coaster ride of this love affair between father and daughter is a moving, hilarious delight.

About the Author

Larry McMurtry is the author of twenty-nine novels, including the Pulitzer Prize–winning Lonesome Dove, three memoirs, two collections of essays, and more than thirty screenplays. He lives in Archer City, Texas.
