A critically acclaimed memoirist: Larry McMurtry's literary career has been one of varied and remarkable successes: as a bookseller, as the author of more than forty books, and as a writer of screenplays that have won not only the hearts of audiences, but numerous awards, including an Oscar Award and a Golden Globe. McMurtry's elegiac prose and sharp wit are omnipresent not only in his novels but in his autobiographical work, which has received rave reviews.
Recounting moments from his earliest inkling of a future career to his tenure as a Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford to his success as a published author,Literary Life will be cherished by McMurtry fans and aspiring writers alike. Including literary anecdotes and gossip, and packed with memorable observations about writing, writers, and the author himself, the book provides rare insight into the mind of a brilliant, intensely private writer.
