      Larry McMurtry

      Highest Rated: 100% The Last Picture Show (1971)

      Lowest Rated: 40% Joe Bell (2020)

      Birthday: Jun 3, 1936

      Birthplace: Wichita Falls, Texas, USA

      Prolific author and screenwriter Larry McMurtry carved a niche as the chronicler of a fictional West (with particular emphasis on his native Texas) in transition. He is credited with reviving the genre and imbuing it with realism laced with satire. Although he has written novels set in other areas of the US, the flavor of the Southwest permeates. Raised in Archer County, TX on a cattle ranch established by his grandfather, McMurtry began his literary career at North Texas State University writing for the literary magazine "Avesta." Upon graduation, he worked intermittently as a teacher, first at Texas Christian University (1961-62) and then at Rice University (1963-64 and 1965-69). He continued his literary career as well, working as a freelance journalist and book reviewer.
