In Terms of Endearment, Larry McMurtry created some of his most memorable characters. He now reintroduces us to Aurora Greenway along with her family, friends and lovers, presenting a funny and bittersweet story about growing up and growing old.

Since her daughter Emma’s death, Aurora has tried her best raising her three grandchildren—but Tommy is in prison; Teddy has just been released from a mental hospital; and Melanie is pregnant and doesn’t know who fathered her child. And through it all, Aurora’s indomitable spirit and humor prevail.

A poignant and refreshing story of human resilience and the ties that bond family and friends, The Evening Star will take its place among Larry McMurtry’s unforgettable classics, and is presented here in an unabridged reading to capture every word of this wonderful novel.

Quotes & Awards

  • “McMurtry is back on familiar ground: the humid freeways of Houston; land of strong-willed, lusty, indomitable women; and the spineless men who inevitably fail them…Endlessly inventive.”

    Entertainment Weekly

  • “A tragicomic pageant…McMurtry displays yet again both his large-souled empathy and Dickensian gift for bringing people to vibrant life as quickly as anyone writing today.”

    Chicago Tribune

  • “The connections between people in this novel, characterized by humor and serenity, run deep and sympathetic. Yet, as in life, there is a fair quotient of the unexpected and the tragic. McMurtry speaks from the heart with the gentle voice of acceptance. Don’t miss this rare and wonderful book.”

    " I loved this book. I loved that he wrote a book continuing with the life of the ever selfish Aurora. I don't know what it is about McMurtry, but he always makes me fall in love with his characters. There is something about his female characters that always knocks me out. "

    " I loved Lonesome Dove by McMurtry soooo much that I expected to love this one, too...but didn't. "

    " I was really dissapointed in this book. I like McMurtry as an author. Every male character is weak. Auora, the main character, is so self absorbed I wanted to scream at her. I couldn't wait to finish it. I didn't come around until the last 50 pages. "
