The dialogue in this tale is so authentic. My grandfather grew up in Texas in the early 1900's and I swear I could hear him speaking on each page. He used many of the same "colorful" expressions and stories. The characters, Gid, Molly and Johnny take us on an unconventional trip down memeory lane and what life was like in their day.

This is an excellent book to read. On a whim I got it knowing it was one of Larry McMurty's early works and I was amazed how well his characters were developed. He is an amazing writer.
