McMurtry is an American novelist, screenwriter and essayist. He is best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning 1985 novel Lonesome Dove, a sweeping historical epic that follows ex-Texas Rangers as they drive their cattle from the Rio Grande to a new home on the frontier of Montana. It was adapted into a hit television miniseries. Much of his other fiction is also set in the 'old west' or contemporary Texas. His book The Last Picture Show was banned in Australia in 1967.
