the man who gave me Gus

Camping essential

From the inside flap:

The central themes of Larry McMurtry's work are the Heartland, with it's dusty plains, it's obsolete cowboys, it's small towns and it's new cities rising like mirages from the surrounding wasteland, and that country of the heart in which his people are lost, restlessly in search of love, sensuality, human warmth, contact with someone else in a barren world where relationships are forever transient.

Today, again, I am grateful for great writers and how contact can mean opening a book.
