More About the Author
"The Washington Post" "Texasville" is a big ol' mess of a book: long, haphazardly plotted, exuberant, populous, good-spirited...the sexual activity is vigorous and varied and described with considerable relish...the novel's intelligence and its compassion are what really matter, and in this, "Texasville" is of a piece with all of McMurtry's best work.

The town might have changed and some people may have moved away, but the two main characters have stayed put.
Duane is still the same but carrying a little extra weight and Sonny still has one eye. We see how they have changed, grown, and adapted to adulthood. You get to see the in's and out's of Duane's mind. Bankruptcy is nipping at his heels, while most of the townspeople are followed by the same fate. Through all this he changes his girlfriends and watches his old best friends mind deteriorate. He discovers new things about his wife and children at the same time as his old girlfriend Jacy moves back to Thalia. The town grows older, while the people fall apart.
A funny and addictive book that makes you want to read it again and again. Easy to read because of McMurtry’s characterisation and humour. It is best if you have read 'The last Picture Show' so you know some of the background behind the town and the people.
