Larry McMurtry's Terms of Endearment touched readers in a way no other story has in recent years. The earthy humor and the powerful emotional impact that set this novel apart rise to brilliant new heights with The Evening Star . McMurtry takes us deep into the heart of Texas, and deep into the heart of one of the most memorable characters of our time, Aurora Greenway--along with her family, friends, and lovers--in a tale of affectionate wit, bittersweet tenderness, and the unexpected turns that life can take. This is Larry McMurtry at his very best: warm, compassionate, full of comic invention, an author so attuned to the feelings, needs, and desires of his characters that they possess a reality unique in American fiction.

display_description In Terms of Endearment, Larry McMurtry created some of his most memorable characters. He now reintroduces us to Aurora Greenway along with her family, friends and lovers, presenting a funny and bittersweet story about growing up and growing old. Since her daughter Emma's death, Aurora has tried her best raising her three grandchildren -- but Tommy is in prison; Teddy has just been released from a mental hospital; and Melanie is pregnant and doesn't know who fathered her child. And through it all, Aurora's indomitable spirit and humor prevail. A poignant and refreshing story of human resilience and the ties that bond family and friends, The Evening Star will take its place among Larry McMurtry's unforgettable classics, and is presented here in an unabridged reading to capture every word of this wonderful novel.
