Read in April, 2010

I picked this book up at a library book sale because it looked interesting, and I have enjoyed other novels by Larry McMurtry. Unfortunately, I learned that this is the third in a trilogy, so I have read the last before the first and the second...and enjoyed it immensely!
Duane Moore is a successful businessman with a quirky family and a comfortable as an-old-pair-of-slippers marriage, who suddenly begins to question his purpose and worth in life. One day he just parks his pick-up, leaves the keys in a dish in the kitchen, and refuses to travel by any other way but on foot or on his bicycle. Thus begins his trek to find his purpose... and so begins this very funny and poignant story.

Just so you’ll know, I do intend to put my own reading life in order by enjoying the rest of this McMurtry trilogy…the first one, and then the second.
