The New York Times Book Review
McMurtry is an alchemist who converts the basest materials to gold; the sexual encounters are sad, funny, touching, sometimes horrifying, but always honest, always human.
Los Angeles Times
McMurtry can transform ordinary words into highly lyrical, poetic passages. He presents human dramas with sympathy and compassion that make us care about his characters in ways that most novelists can't.
The Boston Globe
There aren't many writers around who are as much fun to read as Larry McMurtry.
