Notes: Published after McMurtry and Ossana won the Academy Award for best adapted screenplay, this book collects Annie Proulx's original short story, the screenplay, and essays by Proulx and Ossana about getting the movie made. Larry McMurtry is the only antiquarian bookseller to win an Oscar.
Edition + Condition: First edition (first printing). A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. Inscribed by Ossana and signed by McMurtry, and uncommon thus. "For Amy & Steve—with gratitude, Larry McMurtry | Diana Ossana." It seems possible that Amy and/or Steve were involved with the film or the making of this book, but your cataloguer has not been able to identify them.
Publication: New York: Scribner, 2006.
