Duane’s Depressed, Larry McMurtry (1999)
For the month of September, the Book Club has chosen to read Larry McMurtry’s Duane’s Depressed. This is the third book in a series of novels that explore the lives of the residents of Thalia, Texas (following The Last Picture Show and Texasville,) but can be enjoyed on its own.
Duane Moore is a successful 62-year old oilman with a wife, four children and nine grandchildren. One day he parks his pick-up truck and starts walking, becoming the subject of town gossip and baffling his wife, Karla. Duane’s “mid-life crisis” and search for meaning is at the center of “funny and poignant” story.
