Críticas:

"The Boston Globe" There aren't many writers around who are as much fun to read as McMurtry. He is precise and lyrical, ironic and sad.

"The New York Times"

A novel of monumental honesty....Attention must be paid.

"Los Angeles Times"

McMurtry can transform ordinary words into highly lyrical, poetic passages...He presents human drama with a sympathy and compassion that make us care about his characters in a way that most novelists can't.



"Saturday Review"

A Texas-sized book...Mr. McMurtry is blessed with an absolutely solid sense of place. His backgrounds and scenic descriptions are inherent parts of his story, contributing as much to the novel as does the completely natural dialogue.

Reseña del editor:

With a riotously colorful cast of highbrows, cowpokes, and rodeo queens, in its wry humor, tenderness, and epic panorama, Moving On is a celebration of our land by Larry McMurtry, one of America’s best-loved authors.

Moving On is a big, powerful novel about men and women in the American West. Set in the 1960s against the backdrop of the honky-tonk glamour of the rodeo and the desperation of suburban Houston, it is the story of the restless and lovable Patsy Carpenter, one of Larry McMurtry’s most unforgettable characters.

Patsy—young, beautiful, with a sharp tongue and an irresistible charm—and her shiftless husband, Jim, are adrift in the West. Patsy moves through affairs of the heart like small towns—there’s Pete, the rodeo clown, and Hank, the graduate student, and others—always in search of the life that seems ever receding around the next bend. Moving On is vintage McMurtry.
