Synopsis: With a riotously colorful cast of highbrows, cowpokes, and rodeo queens, in its wry humor, tenderness, and epic panorama, Moving On is a celebration of our land by Larry McMurtry, one of America?s best-loved authors.
Moving On is a big, powerful novel about men and women in the American West. Set in the 1960s against the backdrop of the honky-tonk glamour of the rodeo and the desperation of suburban Houston, it is the story of the restless and lovable Patsy Carpenter, one of Larry McMurtry?s most unforgettable characters.
Patsy?young, beautiful, with a sharp tongue and an irresistible charm?and her shiftless husband, Jim, are adrift in the West. Patsy moves through affairs of the heart like small towns?there?s Pete, the rodeo clown, and Hank, the graduate student, and others?always in search of the life that seems ever receding around the next bend. Moving On is vintage McMurtry.
About the Author: Larry McMurtry is the author of twenty-nine novels, including the Pulitzer Prize?winning Lonesome Dove, three memoirs, two collections of essays, and more than thirty screenplays. He lives in Archer City, Texas.
