Description
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of "Lonesome" "Dove" comes a powerful coming-of-age novel set in the American West. In Thalia, Texas, Larry McMurtry epitomizes small-town America and through characters reintroduced in "Texasville" and "Duane's Depressed," captures the ecstasy and heartbreak of adolescence.
"The Last Picture Show" is one of Larry McMurtry's most memorable novels, and the basis for the enormously popular movie of the same name. Set in a small, dusty, Texas town, "The Last Picture Show" introduced the characters of Jacy, Duane, and Sonny: teenagers stumbling toward adulthood, discovering the beguiling mysteries of sex and the even more baffling mysteries of love. Populated by a wonderful cast of eccentrics and animated by McMurtry's wry and raucous humor, "The Last Picture Show" is a wild, heartbreaking, and poignant novel that resonates with the magical passion of youth.
