I am amazed at McMurtry's skill at portraying the Old West with each additional page I read. His characters are quirky individuals, sometimes funny, sometimes pathetic, but always real. HIs descriptions of the action of the untamed West are not to be equalled--brutal, breath-taking, and again, very real.
Larry McMurty was born in Wichita Falls Texas in 1936. His first published book Horseman, Pass By was adapted into the film "Hud".
McMurty went on to publish many more novels, a number of which went on to become movies as well as a TV mini-series.
