And, of course, Jim Dixon is right. Mine came from 'Anything for Billy'. When I grocery shop I frequently stop in at the Salvation Army across the street and select a book to read during my lunch at the deli.

I've chosen some clunkers - some I didn't ever finish - but I've also found some gems. Larry McMurtry's book is one of them. I enjoyed the protagonist.
