It was important to read this , as it helped me understand Mr. Proust's tome . The book plodes along , ultimately showing some good character development . Too long , but a good effort , Larry

Poor Duane. Down at heart, but not down on his luck, he is living a life of mediocrity that is only slightly more exciting than watching his town die. His big earnings and big house don?t seem to add up to much anymore and his friends keep drifting farther away. Sonny is no more than a shadow of his former self, and Jacy is missing and presumed dead. What could happen next? Well, not much. Can you imagine Duane starting a community garden? Wow. And what if some of the characters die? Interesting, huh. Well, no not really. What the heck happened? ?The last picture show? was such a great book, perhaps it should stand by itself. And this end of a trilogy is as flat as the landscape McMurtry describes.
