".The central figure of this novel is Danny Deck, a young writer on the verge of success, drifting from his native Texas to California, then back again, unsuccessfully married to Sally, a beautiful girl who brings with her problems that neither one of them is able ot face or solve, falling in love with Jill, who has the power to make him happy but won't stay, finding out that it's easier to know the people you don't sleep with than those you do. Larry McMurtry's special gifts -- his marvelous ability to re-create the subtle textures of people's lives, his ear for the voices of his own country, and his concern for that confrontation between the burdens of a Puritan past and the complexities of the sensual present -- have never been more in evidence than in this brilliant and remarkable novel."

New York Simon & Schuster 2004 0-7432-3305-0 / 9780743233057 First Edition, First Printing SIGNED by the Author
[2004]. Near Fine in a Fine dustjacket. Speckled tan boards with a beige, gilt-stamped backstrip. Quarto. Map-endpapers. xv + 236pps.

"...In the final volume of 'The Berrybender Narratives,' Tasmin and her family are under arrest in Mexican Santa Fe. Tasmin, who would once have followed her husband anywhere, is no longer even sure she likes him, or knows where to go to next. Captain Clark, of Lewis and Clark fame, is puzzled by the great changes sweeping over the West, replacing red men and buffalo with towns and farms.
Jim Snow, Kit Carson and one of Lord Berrybender's many illegitimate offspring make their way back to Santa Fe. But even they are unable to prevent the Mexicans from carrying the Berrybender family on a long and terrible journey across the desert to Vera Cruz. Beset by Indians and hounded by their Mexican guards, the Berrybenders endure all the horror of the Jornado del Muerto -- the legendary Dead Man's Walk. The Mexican commander of the party falls in love with Tasmin, with unhappy consequences.
Starving, dying of thirst, they finally make their way to New Orleans, where Jim Snow has to choose between Tasmin and the great American plains. And after all her adventures, Tasmin must finally decide where her future lies..."

[1970]. Near Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Gray boards quarterbound in brown cloth. The spine is stamped in brown, gilt, and red. Quarto. 794pps. Stated First Printing.

The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed and has a small closed tear at the bottom of the front panel; (the original price (7.95) is intact. A very nice, collector's-quality copy of this early McMurtry novel. ".A big, powerful novel about men and women in the American West. Set in the 1960s against the backdrop of the honky-tonk glamour of the rodeo and the desperation of suburban Houston, it is the story of the restless and lovable Patsy Carpenter, one of Larry McMurtry's most unforgettable characters. Patsy -- young, beautiful, with a sharp tongue and an irresistible charm -- and her shiftless husband, Jim, are adrift in the West. Patsy moves through affairs of the heart like small towns -- there's Pete, the rodeo clown, and Hank, the graduate student, and others -- always in search of the life that seems ever receding around the next bend. Peopled with a riotously colorful cast of highbrows, cowpokes, and rodeo queens, in its wry humor, tenderness, and epic panorama, 'Moving On' is a celebration of our land by one of America's best-loved authors. 'Moving On' is vintage McMurtry." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded. Thanks for your interest in Nooks Of Books. To assist with your decision, photos can be emailed upon request.
