Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen: Reflections at Sixty and Beyond
Nobody writes about Texas like Larry McMurtry. Now, in an unforgettable work of nonfiction as close to autobiography as we are likely to see, this inimitable writer presents a sly but revealing self-portrait that also frames the larger story of Texas itself. McMurtry examines the small-town way of life that big oil and big ranching have nearly destroyed. He writes with feeling about his own experiences as a writer, celebrity, parent, and heart patient, and lays bare the raw material that helped to shape his life's work.
