The Evening Star by Larry McMurtry


Hardcover with dust jacket in beautiful condition.

Dust jacket is excellent;  minor surface tear over rear barcode.  Now housed in a new HQ protective mylar jacket.

Book itself is excellent.  Small spot stain or mark on top of text block; just barely visible on the tips of a few pages mid book [see last 2 photos] -- otherwise very nice!

The earthy humor and the powerful emotional impact that set McMurtry's Terms of Endearment apart from other novels now rise to brilliant new heights with The Evening Star .

McMurtry takes us deep into the heart of Texas, and deep into the heart of one of the most memorable characters of our time, Aurora Greenway—along with her family, friends, and lovers—in a tale of affectionate wit, bittersweet tenderness, and the unexpected turns that life can take. This is Larry McMurtry at his very warm, compassionate, full of comic invention, an author so attuned to the feelings, needs, and desires of his characters that they possess a reality unique in American fiction.
