About the Author
Although Larry McMurtry worked as a cowhand on his father’s Texas cattle ranch until he was 22, he never aspired to be a rancher. He published his first book, Horseman, Pass By, which was turned into a movie, when he was just 25. Other McMurtry novels that were adapted for film include The Last Picture Show and Terms of Endearment. He won the Pulitzer Prize for his frontier epic Lonesome Dove, which became an Emmy Award-winning miniseries, and has written more than 30 screenplays.
