Praise for Zeke and Ned

“Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana have written a novel as unruly and exuberant and headlong as a colt that hasn’t yet learned to reckon with its own legs.”

—Susan Dodd, The Washington Post Book World

“[Zeke and Ned] captivates the reader as it moves through vivid, dramatic, and violent episodes. Dickensian (will we ultimately say McMurtryesque?) characters fill the novel and provide an abundance of comic, tragic, vicious, pathetic, and colorful accents.”

—Phil Montgomery, The Dallas Morning News

“The storytelling is pure McMurtry, fast-paced, witty, and filled with offbeat characters, crisp dialogue, and dramatic reversals of fate.”

—Gene Lyons, Entertainment Weekly

“Zeke and Ned has the tone of a yarn spun over a campfire with plenty of whiskey on hand and nobody in a rush to get anyplace. . . . An enjoyable, richly entertaining reading experience . . . As the wagon bounces along . . .

you simply enjoy the ride.”

—Joyce Maynard, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Captain Call and Gus McCrae of Lonesome Dove must now make room for Zeke Proctor and Ned Christie of the Cherokee Nation. With Diana Ossana, Larry McMurtry has created another cyclorama in words of his own richly colored West.”

—Dee Brown, author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee

“A grand-scale tragedy . . . recounted with a conversational authenticity and understated humor that is a McMurtry trademark . . . The authors know how to sustain a drama played out over a plate of corn and vinegar cobbler, and they do it well.”

—Joyce Maynard, Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Tender, well-written . . . A colorful and often poignant dramatization of historical events and figures. If this isn’t the way things happened and the people actually were, it’s the way they should have been. . . . Perhaps one of McMurtry’s best novels.”

—Clay Reynolds, Houston Chronicle

“The novel’s pleasure is in the details: the fleshy present, the interiority that turns textbook footnotes into characters.”

—Laurie Stone, The Village Voice

“The women . . . [make] this novel a heartbreaker.”

—Susan Dodd, The Washington Post Book World

“McMurtry [is] perhaps a legend himself in the Wild West genre as king of the Lonesome Dove series. . . . This is a gritty, dust-filled . . . entertaining history lesson.”

—Billie Rae Bates, The Detroit News
