Larry McMurtry and the West; an ambivalent relationship
Busby, Mark,

 Hardcover (Original Cloth) Hardcover (Original Cloth). Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. First Edition. in the original maroon cloth backed dark lavender marbled hardcover boards. There is no damage to describe. The purpose of this study is to examine Larry McMurtry's writing career in order to establish the significance of his relationship with his home region. My thesis is that McMurtry's writing is characterised by a deep ambivalence towards his home territory, a vacillation that cuts through his work and his attitudes about writing itself.
