Larry McMurtry avec Streets of Laredo (Lonesome Dove)

Captain Woodrow Call, Gus McCrae's old partner, once a youthful Texas Ranger, is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal young Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus's sweetheart.
Their long, perilous chase leads them across the last wild stretches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, deep into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.
The final novel in the Lonesome Dove quartet, Streets of Laredo is an exhilarating, elegiac and achingly poignant tale of heroism and friendship.

Review
One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements (Los Angeles Times)

Larry McMurtry is a wonderful storyteller, and with [Streets of Laredo] he has written a novel that is even better than the original - and that was one hell of a tale (Boston Globe)

Larry McMurtry remains a genius at dialogue. The scene where the seven whores start reminiscing about the first men in their lives is wonderful (New York Times Book Review)

Streets of Laredo is a splendid addition to the literary portrait of McMurtry's native Texas and the West that he has been creating for three decades. It's also one of his most affectingly melancholy books . . . The characters are as finely etched as any McMurtry has ever minted (Newsweek)

A marvellous novel in its own right, and in every way a worthy successor to Lonesome Dove (Chicago Tribune)

Gorgeous . . . violent, funny, achingly sad, filled with heroism and regret . . . If you can put Streets of Laredo down, I'll eat my ten-gallon hat (Cosmopolitan)

The winding down of a grand American legend offers a vision of dust and death through a golden haze (Time)

Those who have been waiting . . . for an appropriate sequel to the memorable and Pulitzer-winning Lonesome Dove can take heart. Streets of Laredo continues that epic of the waning years of the Texas Rangers with all the narrative drive and elegiac passion of its forerunner (Publishers Weekly)

McMurtry has written a sad, funny elegy not only for his characters' pasts, but for the waning of the American West (New York Times)

From the Back Cover

Captain Woodrow Call - Gus McCrae's old partner and a Texas Ranger in his youth - is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus's sweetheart.

Their long, perilous chase leads them across the last wild stretches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, deep into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.

The final novel in the Lonesome Dove quartet, Streets of Laredo is an exhilarating, elegiac and achingly poignant tale of heroism and friendship.
