Books: A Memoir
The Pequod Review:
In addition to his career as a novelist, Larry McMurtry (1936-2021) owned and operated an antiquarian bookstore called Booked Up, which originated in Washington D.C. but was relocated to his hometown of Archer City, Texas. Books: A Memoir is a scattered collection of various stories and anecdotes from his life in the book business. However, while McMurtry's conversational voice is engaging, most of his stories are lacking in substance or import.
