"Being a big book geek, I like to read books about books, libraries, bookstores, you get the picture. I just finished Books by Larry McMurtry and what a great read! Many people know him as the author of The Lonesome Dove or Terms of Endearment, but he has been a book buyer/seller and bookstore owner his entire life. In fact, he thinks of himself primarily as a antiquarian book guy, not a writer."
In an intimate and intriguing memoir, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove recounts his lifelong love affair with books, from his largely "bookless" boyhood and discovery of literature as a young man, to the evolution of his writing career and his passion as a book collector who opens bookstores of rare and collectible volumes.
