Today, we love Larry McMurtry. Because he is friends with Dave Hickey. Because he wrote All My Friends Are Going To Be Strangers, which is the nicest little romp through California with a girl named Sally. Because he’s not Beat, he’s Cowboy. Luckiest young plucky writer alive: Lonesome Dove. Pulizter. Not so young anymore, but still plucky. Thirty something books later, he lives in Archer CIty, Texas.
