Larry McMurtry (1936) is an author, screenwriter, bookseller and collector. From the dust jacket, "... Books: A Memoir is like the best kind of diary - full of McMurtry's wonderful anecdotes, amazing characters, engaging gossip, and shrewd observations about authors, book people, literature, and the author himself." A great read.
