Read full description of the books:



In perhaps
his finest "contemporary" novel since Terms of Endearment, Larry
McMurtry, with his miraculously sure touch at creating instantly recognizable
women characters, and his equally miraculous sharp eye for the absurdities of
everyday life in the modern West, writes about two women, old friends, who set
off on an adventure?with unpredictable and sometimes hilarious
results.

Loop Group
opens, we meet Maggie, whose three grown-up daughters have arrived at her
Hollywood home to try and make her see sense about her life, which isn t easy,
first of all because their own lives are a mess, and secondly because as far as
Maggie is concerned her own life makes perfect sense. She is self-supporting,
running a successful "loop group" dubbing movies, she has a lover (admittedly he
is married, and her psychoanalyst, and very old), and leads a busy life that
intersects with lots of interesting?all right,
bizarre?people.

     Still, her daughters
push her into having a few second thoughts about her life, and these are
reinforced when her best friend, Connie seeks an escape from her own world of
complex and difficult relationships with men. Since neither high-end nor low-end
shopping seems to relieve their angst, and since a succession of sad events
takes place that shakes Maggie to the core, she conceives the idea of driving to
visit her Aunt Cooney s ranch near Electric City, Texas, and the two women
prepare for the trip by buying a .38 Special revolver (which leads to unexpected
trouble along the way). This road trip will end by changing their
lives.

     Tangling along the way
with Hopi Indians, with a bearded vagrant who turns out to be an old
acquaintance, with the theft of their car (and their revolver), and with every
possible variety of cardsharp, faker, charmer, and crook, the two women
eventually proceed through the desert landscape to Electric City, and discover
some home truths about life. When they return to Hollywood, they find that one
of Maggie s old friends, an ancient MGM producer, has left her a gift that
enables her to make a new start to her life and to bring a new measure of sanity
to her family and friends.

     Alternately
hilariously funny and profoundly sad-even tragic-Loop Group is a major
Larry McMurtry novel and a joy to read.
