Readers Circle Hoboken NJ Larry McMurtry The Last Picture Show

Here’s a synopsis: “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.”
