Author Info
Larry McMurtry
The son of a cattle rancher, Larry McMurtry spent most of his childhood on horseback under the vast, blue sky of the Texas Panhandle. In 1958, he received a B.A. from North Texas State University and in 1960 an M.A. from Rice University. In 1959, McMurtry married Josephine Ballard. They had a son, James Lawrence McMurtry, and were divorced in 1966. McMurtry won a Stegner Fellowship to do graduate work at Stanford University, and then taught creative writing at Rice. His first book, HORSEMAN, PASS BY, was published in 1961 and was immediately hailed as the first great novel to depict the conflict between the Old West and the New West. This tale of an old-time cattleman and his unscrupulous stepson (made into the movie HUD) began what would become a string of literary and commercial successes for McMurtry. Many of his books, including the Pulitzer Prize-winning LONESOME DOVE, have achieved best-seller status, and several more, including BUFFALO GIRLS, TERMS OF ENDEARMENT, and THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, have been adapted for film. The major theme of most of his literary work is disillusionment with the myth of the West. McMurtry is also a well-known antiquarian bookseller (and collector), who has turned his Texas home town into an important center for used and rare books.
From the Publisher
Annotation In this sequel to Larry McMurtry's DUANE'S DEPRESSED, Duane Moore, 64, finds himself surrounded by his squabbling family, the urban sprawl that's swallowing up his home town, and the flagging of his sexual libido due to a health problem. However, the advances of a sexy computer expert and the not entirely professional help of a "lesbian" therapist might just stimulate his lust for life, even as he suffers from the loss of his wife.
Editors Note A sequel to Duane's Depressed by the Oscar-winning screenplay writer for Brokeback Mountain finds widower Duane Moore returning to west Texas, where he finds the family oil business significantly altered by new personnel, evolving family dynamics, and his own perspective changes. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.
