Publisher's Summary

Danny Deck - Emma's friend from Terms of Endearment - is a promising young writer losing touch with his talent and drifting from Texas to California because "that's where all the writers are." Set in the early 60s, this is a very funny (and raunchy) satire of life in Texas and California and a true and American portrait of an artist as a young man.

Favorite audio book ever

I have listened to this audio book once a year for the last 14 years!! Love the story , I have grown to love the main character Danny! The narrator does an excellent job of making each character come to life. Looking forward to listening to it again next year !!
