R.I.P. Larry McMurtry (1936-2021), author



Larry McMurtry published his first novel, Horseman, Pass By, at the age of 25, finding immediate success -- which in turn transitioned into immediate success in Hollywood, as the rights were snapped up and filmed as the iconic Paul Newman film Hud. Many more books, and movies and television miniseries based on those books, would follow, including The Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment, and Lonesome Dove. He occasionally tried his hand at screenwriting, most notably collaborating with Diana Ossana on the script for 2005's Brokeback Mountain, for which he won an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
