McMurtry states in his preface to the present volume, "These memoirs of my own, witha volume yet to come, are collectively my summing up. And what they sum up is how satisfying the work of a man of letters - I believe I now am one - can be." His second memoir, Literary Life, covers McMurty's tenure as a Wallace Stegner fellow at Stanford with Ken Kesey to his initial triumphs as a bestselling author.
