The Last Picture Show. Larry McMurtry.

The Last Picture Show.

New York: The Dial Press, 1966. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket. Text block and binding are bright and tight. No names or inscriptions. There is a tiny ink number on the flyleaf. Jacket is not price clipped, with none of the usual fading to the red title lettering on the spine. There is one closed tear to the front panel and just a touch of soiling to the extremities. An exceptionally bright copy. The Last Picture Show is one of Larry McMurtry's most memorable novels, and 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 a wild, heartbreaking, and poignant novel that resonates with the magical passion of youth.
