AT has written before about our admiration for Texas writer Larry McMurtry, best known for Lonesome Dove, a popular novel that became a popular television mini-series.
McMurty's latest book is a memoir, Literary Life, which looks back at the author's life as a novelist, essayist, critic and screenwriter (McMurtry adapted the short story that became the award-winning movie, Brokeback Mountain).
Earlier today, NPR's Morning Edition aired an interview with McMurtry about his memoir and his life as a literary man. The interview provides some interesting insights into McMurtry's views of his own successes (and failures) as a novelist.
For McMurtry fans, it's worth a listen. The NPR story, with an audio link, is here.
