Summary

Summary

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry follows up Books and Literary Life with this final installment in his memoir trilogy. Tinged with his wry humor and Texas swagger, Hollywood is McMurtry's anecdote-filled take on Tinseltown from the year his Horseman, Pass By was adapted into Hud (1963) to the year he wrote the screenplay for the Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain (2005).

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] delightfully episodic account of [McMurtry’s] long, profitable, and generally rather enjoyable engagement with the movie industry.” Los Angeles Times
“Insightful...Underneath the entertaining anecdotes and wry asides, there’s real wisdom here.” Wall Street Journal
“Gentle and reflective.” Dallas Morning News
“While the author’s memories are predominantly gentle and reflective, Henry Strozier’s narration is gravelly and somewhat cynical, a style that works well. His direct and warm tone is reassuring and approachable.” AudioFile
“Sharp, interesting, and enjoyable.” Booklist
“A fast, breezy read with many deliberate digressions and his characteristically sharp observations.” Library Journal
