Description:
London: W. H. Allen, 1985. First British edition. Hardcover. Near fine/Near fine. The British edition of this novel about a Las Vegas showgirl. In his memoir Literary Life, McMurtry said he wrote this novel "in twenty-two days" and that the book "seemed to flow out of me as rapidly as I could type. The Desert Rose was supposed to have been a screenplay, but, to my intense relief, it came out as a novel. I had hardly written a sentence I liked for eight years: to actually enjoy my own prose again was a big, big deal" (p. 91). 254 pages. First British edition (stated). A near fine copy in a near fine dust jacket. Pages tanning as usual. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Tom, Larry McMurtry." This UK edition is uncommon signed.
