It was so interesting to read this book after watching the movie over the years. The book is about Aurora Greenway, while the movie was taken from the last quarter of the book. It's an amazing cultural study, full of racism, sexism, spouse abuse, adultery, child neglect -- all presented as routine aspects of everyday lives. Fascinating! It's going to take me awhile to figure out how McMurtry got away with it.
