ParadiseBook - 2001
At once an inviting travel book and an insightful reflection on his parents' marriage, Paradise is McMurtry's most original and personal work to date. The author sets off for Tahiti in the South Sea Islands as he challenges the overtones of hard work, bitter disappointment, and the Puritan work ethic of his west Texas roots.
