Telegraph Days: A Novel

Telegraph Days: A Novel - Larry McMurtry Telegraph Days is an entertaining, very light novel that in a way is a summary of Western American popular history and myth. The book doesn’t quite start out that way, so you wonder if McMurtry decided to toss one out for fun, but it works, for the most part, and is enjoyable all the way through. Is there anyone who hasn’t read [book: Lonesome Dove] yet? That’s a masterpiece; Telegraph Days, by comparison, seems like McMurtry only wetting the brush.
