Writer Larry McMurtry has died at age 84. His books were bestsellers and became the movies “Hud,” “Lonesome Dove,” “Terms of Endearment,” and “The Last Picture Show,” among others.
No cause of death has been given.
McMurtry was a larger than life figure, maybe one of the last real literary lions. Here’s his NY Times obit.
McMurtry’s long association with Hollywood culminated with an Oscar win for Best Adapted Screenplay in 2006 for “Brokeback Mountain.”
