    An almost-true story about a small town in Texas that ought to exist if it doesn’t, with characters like Sam the Lion, the delectable Jacy, and Ruth Popper, the coach’s wife. 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.

    Legendary author Larry McMurtry—who has both a Pulitzer Prize and an Academy Award to his credit—concludes the story of Duane Moore, who first appeared in the 1966 classic The Last Picture Show.... Fast approaching 70, Duane is adjusting to the loneliness of retirement. Then things get stirred up when a billionaire heiress moves to the area and opens a rhinoceros sanctuary.

    Buddies Duane & Billy remind me of Gus & McCall.

    McMurtry has done it again...love the characters, buddies Duane and Billy. Life in small town Texas.
