Set in a small, dusty Texas town, The Last Picture Show introduces Jacy, Duane, and Sonny -- three teenagers stumbling toward adulthood, discovering the mysteries of sex, and even the more baffling intrigues of love. Populated by a wonderful cast of eccentrics and animated by McMurtry's wry and raucous humor, it's a coming of age novel that resonates with the magical passion of youth.

A sleepy, dusty old town filled with warm and wonderful characters. Frustrations of small town living are in every day and still the people move forward.
Of the three main characters, Duane, Jacy & Sonny, I like Sonny the best. But the lives of all of these characters is poignant and warm as they find their way through their last year of high school and into the world.
I look forward to continuing their stories in Texasville one day soon.

A dusty, slightly hopeless journey through the barrenness of coming of age in west Texas, where everyone hits their peak in high school, and it's all downhill from there. Fans of Keith Maillard will appreciate the author's unflinching gaze and southern gothic sensibility.
