WHENAUGUSTUS CAME OUT on the porch the blue pigs were eating a rat-tlesnake—not a very big one. It had probably just been crawling around looking for shade Released on: J   Thus, Big Lonesome is a “concept album”, if you will, in that its “thematic resonance is the most important guiding principle -- the stories very consciously complement and complicate one /5.

    BIG LONESOME navigates through the American West from the Old West to the modern-day West to the Midwest, from cowboys to mythical creatures to everything in between exploring place, myth, masculinity, and what it means to be whole or to be broken. Even so, Lonesome Dove does for Westerns what All Quiet did for war novels—it revolutionized them. In this book, Larry McMurtry took cowboys and Indians from a questionable children's game and brought it into the big leagues with an epic novel that's as much a Western as it is a critique of the genre.
