THE FINAL VOLUMEN OF THE LAST PICTURE SHOW/TEXASVILLE STORY In The Last Picture Show and Texasville, Larry McMurtry created a cast that achieved instant recognition, both in print and on the screen-Duane, his friend and rival, Sonny, Jacy, Ruth Popper, Karla, Lester, and the oil-patch town of Thalia. Now, in Duane's Depressed, McMurtry brings the Thalia saga to an end with Duane confronting depression in the midst of plenty. Surrounded by his children, wife, and friends all of whom seem to be going through life crises-Duane can't seem to make sense of his anymore and shocks his loved ones and the local countryside by giving up his pickup truck to go on foot (and later by bike), a sure sign of depression, if not madness, by local community standards. Utterly unsentimental, often hilarious, sometimes tragic and shocking, and in the end full of hope, Duane's Depressed is a major work art by any standard.
