“A master reflects on the joy of writing . . . An invitation into the working writer’s head.” —The Boston Globe
“The master of the showstopping anecdote.” —Kristy Davis, O, The Oprah Magazine
“Entertaining and enlightening.” —David Hendricks, San Antonio Express-News
“A rambling, shambling, and ambling autobiography.” —John Barron, Chicago Sun-Times
“Mr. McMurtry is an outsider with insider stories and connections. . . . Strewn through this book’s loose narrative are stories about things like eating chicken gizzards and attending a stock car race in Texas with Susan Sontag. . . . The book is also, happily, filled with his literary enthusiasms.” —Dwight Garner, New York Times
