A Texas Love Story

By Levi Asher on Monday, June 27, 2011 05:52 pm

Novelist Larry McMurtry (The Last Picture Show, Lonesome Dove, Books: A Memoir, Terms of Endearment, All My Friends Are Going to Be Strangers) and Faye Kesey, widow of the late Ken Kesey, surprised a few folks in the literary world when they got married in April. I just saw a few beautiful photos from the Texas wedding, courtesy of Zane Kesey, who said it'd be okay for me to share them here.

Awww, right?! Looks like a really sweet scene ... and here's a shot of the bride and groom, in what I imagine must be Larry's own bookstore.

Best wishes to the happy couple!

McMurtry goes way back with Ken Kesey. He was in the Wallace Stegner fiction class at Stanford with Kesey and also Robert Stone.

In his book "All My Friends Are Going To Be Strangers" he describes the Merry Pranksters as "The New Americans", and has a funny scene with the Pranksters all piled on top of each other in some fit of group paranoia.

In the home movie of the Further trip, Kesey and the Pranksters stop in Houston to visit McMurtry at his house.

So I suppose he knew Faye pretty well.
