Lonesome Dove author Larry McMurtry likes to tell people that Texas has yet to produce a Faulkner. He may be right, but we have managed to come up with a McMurtry. And that is pretty impressive. The award-winning writer and his partner Diana Ossana were in Dallas recently as part of the Nasher Sculpture Centers Salon series. I had a chance to sit down with the two of them beforehand. Theyre both book lovers, but McMurtry does have a problem with one project that has been working to put more American fiction in front of readers.
