Publisher's Summary

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry follows up Books and Literary Life with this final installment in his memoir trilogy. Tinged with his wry humor and Texas swagger, Hollywood is McMurtry’s anecdote-filled take on Tinseltown from the year his Horseman, Pass By was adapted into Hud (1963) to the year he wrote the screenplay for the Oscar-winning Brokeback Mountain (2005).

An interesting view to look from!

Written by a screenwriter from his view. I have never heard a story like this before. I had to opportunity to see the Hollywood social theater from his viewpoint and this was very interesting! Great writer! I instantly looked for any other books written by him and bought the other one available on audible.com. Witty, brilliant, savvy perceptions of people and their purpose. Truly fine company and I was grateful to be so entertained!
