Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“McMurtry is back on familiar ground: the humid freeways of Houston; land of strong-willed, lusty, indomitable women; and the spineless men who inevitably fail them…Endlessly inventive.” Entertainment Weekly
“A tragicomic pageant…McMurtry displays yet again both his large-souled empathy and Dickensian gift for bringing people to vibrant life as quickly as anyone writing today.” Chicago Tribune
“The connections between people in this novel, characterized by humor and serenity, run deep and sympathetic. Yet, as in life, there is a fair quotient of the unexpected and the tragic. McMurtry speaks from the heart with the gentle voice of acceptance. Don’t miss this rare and wonderful book.” Library Journal
