Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
The New York Times Excellent...a tough, nostalgic narrative of a young man growing up in Texas.

Best Sellers Echoes of James Jones and Thomas Wolfe...notable and unique.

The New York Times Book Review Larry McMurtry is "a poet, a resonant scene-setter, and a master of voice."

The Houston Post What an imagination he has! When it comes to spinning a good yarn, few writers do it better than McMurtry.
