No other novelist has been as successful as Larry McMurtry in capturing the landscape and the people that are unique to the American heartland; he paints his canvases in broad, restless strokes to evoke an endless, peculiarly American search for new frontiers.
Certainly the author of The Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment and Leaving Cheyenne has a kind of genius for creating real, provocative—sometimes eccentric—people who stand out solidly against a landscape that is as transient as the traffic that moves along Americas highways.
McMurtry s characters—even the "minor" ones—are so sharply etched that they take on a kind of immediate gritty immortality. None more so than the hero of Cadillac Jack, the rodeo cowboy turned antique dealer whose vaguely gypsy life (the center of his life is his collectors classic Cadillac) links the worlds of Texas, the backroads of flea markets and small-time collectors and Washington social-political high life. He not only lives in two worlds, detached from both by a certain wry objectivity, but he loves two women....
Richly comic, profoundly moving, with a cast of characters that includes a high-rolling Texas wheeler-dealer in Washington, his beautiful wife, a Texas rancher whose collection of custom-made boots is virtually a national treasure, plus other collectors, political pundits, teenaged nymphets and the kind of attractive young women who seem to have their minds on something else when they're making love (a McMurtry trademark), Cadillac Jack is one of Larry McMurtry's most memorable —and original—novels.
