About this item
The youth of a small town in mid-twentieth-century Texas search for ways to escape boredom and experience life and love
"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.
