Summary :

The Last Picture Show is one of Larry McMurtry's most powerful, memorable novels - the basis for the enormously popular movie of the same name. Set in a small, dusty Texas town, The Last Picture Show introduced the characters of Jacy, Duane, and Sonny: teenagers stumbling toward adulthood, discovering the beguiling mysteries of sex and the even more baffling mysteries of love. Populated by a wonderful cast of eccentrics and animated by McMurtry's wry and raucous humor, The Last Picture Show is wild, heartbreaking, and poignant - a coming-of-age novel that resonates with the magical passion of youth.
