McMurtry described his method for writing novels in Books: A Memoir. He says that from his first novel on, he would get up early and dash off five pages of narrative  . While at Stanford, McMurtry became a rare-book scout, and during his years in Houston, managed a book store there called the Bookman. In 1969, he moved to the Washington, DC, area, and in 1970 with two partners started a bookshop in Georgetown which he named Booked Up.

Nope, I’m up, she said, and waited-she wasn’t going to build his ego by giving him any chatter, chatter was her mother’s department. The reason I’m calling is about the audition, he said ondering if you could come this. The reason I’m calling is about the audition, he said ondering if you could come this afternoon at about three? How long will it take? she asked. For all she knew she could be getting married that afternoon. Oh, about an hour, we just want you to try out a few routines, he said. How about two-thirty then?. My lesson starts at three-thirty and Madonna doesn’t like it if I’m late. Fine, Bonventre said.

After reading "The Late Child" (which was a sequel to "The Desert Rose"), I became intrigued with Harmony's early life - and her daughter's as well. Thus, I began the search on Amazon for "The Desert Rose," a book originally published in the 1980s. I was fortunate that I was able to receive a "like new" version of this book -- and look forward to learning more about Harmony and Pepper and their earlier years.

i expected a storyline closer to terms of endeatment and evening star. i was disappointed that it read sorta chopply. i guess mcmurtry had a two hit wonder and thats that.

Good solid McMurtry....I have read almost all his books this year...Tthe only thing I like about Kindel is the ability to get all the books writen by a writer even the most ancient...Going back you get the BEST earlier works.
Good story, ended too soon. I really like Larry McMurtry writing
