Bibliographic Details

Title: Literary Life: A Second Memoir.

Publisher: Simon & Schuster, New York

Publication Date: 2009

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Fine copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. This is McMurtry's second memoir that focuses on his writing life that began with his tenure under Wallace Stegner at Stanford to his first novel "Horseman, Pass By" and his ultimate literary success with the publication of "Lonesome Dove." In Literary Life, the sequel to Books, he expounds on the private trials and triumphs of being a writer. From his earliest inkling of his future career while at Rice University, to his tenure as a Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford with Ken Kesey in 1960, to his incredible triumphs as a bestselling author, this intimate and charming autobiography is replete with literary anecdotes and packed with memorable observations about writing, writers, and the author himself. As usual, McMurtry writes candidly of writing life with a lot telling anecdotes. Bookseller Inventory # 25548
