Reviews

"Streets of Laredo is a splendid addition to the literary portrait of McMurtry's native Texas and the West that he has been creating for three decades. It's also one of his most affectingly melancholy books. . . . The characters are as finely etched as any McMurtry has ever minted."--Newsweek
"Gorgeous . . . violent, funny, achingly sad, filled with heroism and regret . . . If you can put Streets of Laredo down, I'll eat my ten-gallon hat."--Cosmopolitan
"A marvelous novel in its own right and in every way a worthy successor to Lonesome Dove."--Chicago Tribune
"One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements."--Los Angeles Times
"Larry McMurtry remains a genius at dialogue. The scene where the seven whores start reminiscing about the first men in their lives in wonderful."--New York Times Book Review
"Larry McMurtry is a wonderful storyteller, and with . . . Streets of Laredo. . . he has written a novel that is even better than the original--and that was one hell of a tale."--Boston Globe
"Streets of Laredo is here and all that needs to be said is this: Hallelujah. . . . McMurtry has taken us back to the glory days of Lonesome Dove. . . ."--Los Angeles Daily News
