this book is a sequel of sorts to the wonderful books which i just finished a few hours ago. while that book dealt almost exclusively with mcmurty's career in the antiquarian book trade, this one deals with his career as a writer, and as such did not hold my interest nearly as much.

as i have only read 4 of his books, i am by no means an expert on his work, but even if i was, i don't think i would have liked this book anyway. it is very disjointed, and quite frankly, downright boring.

he has a third volume of memoirs out, which deals with his career in hollywood, in so much as many of his books have been made into movies or mini-series, none of which i have seen, and he also had a fair bit of success with writing screenplays. i have no interest in reading that book at all.
