Mostly True Memoirs
A LARRY McMURTRY TRIBUTE
The Modern Art Museum is hosting a Larry McMurtry tribute all month.
They’re showing the movies and hosting a discussion.
This weekend, we went to see The Last Picture Show.
I loved the book, but I had never seen the movie.
I’m glad I went.
The movie was very true to the book.
At home I tried to watch Texasville, which is the sequel.
But I couldn’t find the movie streaming anywhere.
I watched Hud instead.
The film strayed from the book, but it was still a great movie.
McMurtry’s books were very controversial when they were first published.
My mother used to hide them.
I’m not sure if she hid them from me or if she hid them for me.
I always found them and read them.
I’m certain she knew.
She would have loved this McMurty tribute.
