Bryan Curtis and David Shoemaker remember the great novelist Larry McMurtry. They reflect on his novels and films such as Lonesome Dove and Terms of Endearment, and talk about the impact McMurtry had on the state of Texas (3:05). Then, author Alexander Wolff stops by to discuss his recent trip to Germany, his relationship with his father, and what it was like revisiting the past in the process of writing his new book, Endpapers: A Family Story of Books, War, Escape, and Home (29:50). Plus, the Overworked Twitter Joke of the Week and David Shoemaker Guesses the Strained-Pun Headline.
