    Books: A Memoir by Larry McMurtry

Yet the most curious tale of all is the amazing transformation of a reluctant young cowboy into a world-class literary figure who has spent his life not only writing books, but rounding them up the way he once rounded up cattle. At once chatty, revealing, and deeply satisfying, Books is Larry McMurtry at his best.

    Conversations with Ken Kesey by Ken Kesey

Though after his two great triumphs writing played a lesser role in Kesey's life, his interviews reveal a thoughtful and generous artist and citizen, who sometimes regrets the books that were sacrificed for the sake of his other pursuits. These conversations make clear Kesey's central place in American culture and offer his enduring lesson that the freedom exists to create lives as wildly as can be imagined.
