The book is tight and square with solid hinges and binding, good tips, and clean unmarred boards. Faint crease to spine head.

Larry McMurtry was a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist but he was also an Oscar winner for his film and television screenwriting. This collection of 1980s essays is written with both an outsider's cool, ironic view of Hollywood but with an insider's direct experience. He takes a funny, original, and penetrating look at the movie industry and gives us the truth about the moguls, fads, flops, and box-office hits.
