About This Item

Very Good to Near Fine book with the ubiquitous page browning, several gathering have aged more than the rest, soft at spine ends, very tiny bump bottom edge back board, touch of age toning along top and bottom edges of boards; in a Very Good jacket that has age toning along edges of lighter portions of jacket, light edge and corner wear with a couple of tiny chips top of spine, small dog-ear crease bottom corner front flap, light rubbing both panels and several light overwrite impressions. This copy has no remainder mark and is a nice example of this book, which has generally aged badly over the years. McMurtry's sixth novel was made into a popular 1983 movie with Shirley MacLaine, Jack Nicholson, Debra Winger, and several other well-known stars. The movie was nominated for 11 and won 5 Academy Awards; including Best Picture, Best Actress for Shirley MacLaine, and Best Supporting Actor for Jack Nicholson.


Terms of Endearment by Larry McMurty is the story of Aurora Greenway, a widowed woman who is shrewd and ferocious, and her daughter Emma, an equally fiesty and courageous woman. This is the story of their relationship, one full of tension and disagreement, as well as the relationships with the people around them as they both learn to love.
