Larry McMurtry, author of The Last Kind Words Saloon

The taciturn Wyatt Earp whiles away his time in between bottles, and the dentist-turned-gunslinger Doc Holliday is more adept at poker than extracting teeth. Now hailed as heroes for their days of subduing drunks in Abilene and Dodge, Wyatt and Doc are living out the last days of a way of life that is passing into history, two men never more aware of the growing distance between their lives and their legends.
