Synopsis: Texans have a very special God. He serves them overdoses of everything...pain, poverty, riches, heat, history. McMurtry catches it all in TEXASVILLE.
Remember THE LAST PICTURE SHOW? Thalia, in the '50s. Duanne and Jacy necking on the team bus, the echoing hopes and dreams of our last innocent generation. Well, this is its sequel.
Thalia got in the way of the oil boom and Duanne got rich. But all the money does is show how empty his life is. The boom turns to bust. In the crisis, Duanne and his fellow Thalians prove once again that Texans do indeed have a very special God!
"As funny and entertaining as THE LAST PICTURE SHOW, except that the characters have aged, so the humor is bittersweet. A fine and satisfying story." (B-O-T Editorial Review Board)
With Texasville, Larry McMurtry returns to the unforgettable Texas town and characters of one of his best-loved books, The Last Picture Show. This is a Texas-sized story brimming with home truths of the heart, and men and women we recognize, believe in, and care about deeply. Set in the post-oil-boom 1980s, Texasville brings us up to date with Duane, who's got an adoring dog, a sassy wife, a twelve-million-dollar debt, and a hot tub by the pool; Jacy, who's finished playing "Jungla" in Italian movies and who's returned to Thalia; and Sonny -- Duane's teenage rival for Jacy's affections -- who owns the car wash, the Kwik-Sackstore, and the video arcade.
One of Larry McMurtry's funniest and most touching contemporary novels.
