117: Backlist: Larry McMurtry (“Lonesome Dove”)

Christopher and Drew get into one of Christopher’s dear favorite novels, Larry McMurtry’s Lonesome Dove, and why Drew just couldn’t finish. They also touch on what type of books you want to read in front of an air conditioner, the satisfying design of the NYRB and Spurl Editions, and Drew explains his method for getting rid of 100 books from his shelves.
