I read this book, "Some Can Whistle," some years ago but decided to purchase it and re-read it because I enjoyed it so much the first time. This is one of many Larry McMurtry novels I have read over the years. Like his other book it is a "can't put it down" novel that can really make you feel like you involved and witnessing the story as it plays out. Larry McMurtry is a great story teller with a keen wit. Both of these qualities make his books most enjoyable to read.

He looked as if he might have been bingeing for a few days, taking drugs, and listening to the Rolling Stones through his earphones. This stupid house looks as if it was made of mud pies. It’s nice inside, I said meekly. and Muddy had quarreled all the way from Arlington, and . was not in a good mood, to put it mildly.

1989: Some Can Whistle (Danny Deck)

McMurtry states in his memoir that he spent his first five or six years in his grandfather's house on a ranch without books, but his extended family would sit on the front porch every night and tell stories. In 1942, when his cousin Robert Hilburn on his way to enlist for World War II stopped by the ranch house and left a box containing 19 books, he began to read. The books were standard boys' adventure tales of the 1930s, and he read them to tatters. 1989: Some Can Whistle (Danny Deck). 1992: The Evening Star (Aurora Greenaway) – adapted for film as The Evening Star.

There are so many facets to a McMurtry tale that it is not possible to explain his method without a reading most of the many books that led to this one. It was a while before I began to suspect something was a bit amiss in this novel. The wide ranging story of Texans from a former Texas ex-patriot is rarely as raw as this even though he is often raw. I read the prequel (All May Friends Are Going To Be Strangers) to this 40 years ago and one day in his Georgetown bookstore asked McMurtry what ever happened to Danny Deck, the narrator of the novel. " Still walking down that river." he told me. Now I know and now I am even more certain than before who Danny is. Fully aware of the Hortons' trials and Duane's travails, the last 25 pages or so of this work are the saddest he's ever written and that is saying some. You'll have a sense of that even if you haven't read all that has come before. I am somehow glad that I waited until now to read all that I didn't want to know.

This is a sequel to McMurtry's earlier book, "All My Friends Are Going To Be Strangers." In it, McMurtry fills us in on what happened to Danny Deck (who bears some resemblance to McMurtry himself) after he threw his novel into the Rio Grande all those years ago. The character of his daughter is a classic McMurtry female - surprising, refreshing, irreverent, and with her own, very compelling take on the universe. I was glad to make her acquaintance.
