At Skylight: Tracy Daugherty presents LARRY McMURTRY: A LIFE

Join us for a biography of the late Pulitzer Prize-winning American novelist and screenwriter Larry McMurtry from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Daugherty.

In over forty books, in a career that spanned over sixty years, Larry McMurtry staked his claim as a superior chronicler of the American West, and as the Great Plains’ keenest witness since Willa Cather and Wallace Stegner. Larry McMurtry: A Life traces his origins as one of the last American writers who had direct contact with this country’s pioneer traditions. It follows his astonishing career as bestselling novelist, Pulitzer-Prize winner, author of the beloved Lonesome Dove, Academy-Award winning screenwriter, public intellectual, and passionate bookseller. A sweeping and insightful look at a versatile, one-of-a-kind American writer, this book is a must-read for every Larry McMurtry fan.

Tracy Daugherty is the author of over twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, including biographies of Joan Didion, Joseph Heller, and Donald Barthelme.  His work has been recognized by the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.  He lives in Corvallis, Oregon.
