by Larry McMurtry

This is a bittersweet novel about Harmony, a lead showgirl dancer in a casino, and the story of hour her career fades in the Las Vegas desert. Larry McMurtry winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, is the author of twenty-three novels, three collections of essays, two memoirs, and more than thirty screenplays, and is the editor of a collection of short stories on the modern West.




“Warm and funny…McMurtry can transform ordinary words into highly lyrical, poetic passages…and presents human dramas with a sympathy and compassion that make us care about his characters in ways that most novelists can’t.” —Los Angeles Times
