Horseman, Pass By: A Novel (Google eブックス)
Simon and Schuster, 2010/06/01 - 192 ページ
When Larry McMurtry's classic novel of the post-World War II era was originally published in 1961, it created a sensation in Texas literary circles. Never before had a writer portrayed the contemporary West in conflict with the Old West in such stark, realistic, unsentimental ways.
Horseman, Pass By, on which the film Hud is based, tells the story of Homer Bannon, an old-time cattleman who epitomizes the frontier values of honesty and decency, and Hud, his unscrupulous stepson. Caught in the middle is the narrator, Homer's young grandson, Lonnie, who is as much drawn to his grandfather's strength of character as he is to Hud's hedonism and materialism. Memorable characters, powerful themes, and illuminating detail make Horseman, Pass By vintage McMurtry.

Larry McMurtry sets this coming of age novel in 1950's Texas with a homesteading way of life. When industrialization came to the small town the main characters react in different ways. An excellent depiction of the old west with the artistically dark nostalgia only McMurtry can do. レビュー全文を読む
