Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

In this book, McMurtry brilliantly evokes the wild, lonely, heartbreaking condition called adolescence. Sonny Crawford and his friend Duane, high-school seniors in the small Texas dustbowl town of thalia, restlessly mark timeat the poolhall and the picture show.


Review:

"McMurtry is an alchemist who converts the basest metals to gold."

W. T. Jack, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"So you saw the movie, with Cybill Shepherd, so what? The book is much better, everything there is to say about sexuality, class and the pain of growing up in a small west-Texas town in the 1950s. It's told by a master storyteller, the Flaubert of the Plains when it comes to creating believable female characters, and still a book that you just can't put down until you reach the last page."

Michael Korda, Salon, 06/07/1999

Book Description: Prentice Hall (a Pearson Education Company), United Kingdom, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 210 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. The Last Picture Show is one of Larry McMurtry s most powerful, memorable novels -- the basis for the enormously popular movie of the same name. Set in a small, dusty, Texas town, The Last Picture Show introduced the characters of Jacy, Duane, and Sonny: teenagers stumbling toward adulthood, discovering the beguiling mysteries of sex and the even more baffling mysteries of love. Populated by a wonderful cast of eccentrics and animated by McMurtry s wry and raucous humor, The Last Picture Show is wild, heartbreaking, and poignant -- a coming-of-age novel that resonates with the magical passion of youth.
