"Mr. Deck, are you my stinkin' Daddy?" In a furious phone call from T.R., the daughter he's never met, Danny Deck gets the jolt of his life. A TV writer who's retired to his Texas mansion, Danny spends his days talking to the answering machines of his ex-lovers from New York to Paris and dreaming of the characters in the sitcom he's created. But suddenly, a hurricane called T.R. is storming into his life...
In his most moving and richly comic contemporary novel since Texasville, Larry McMurtry returns to the modern West he created so masterfully in The Last Picture Show and Terms of Endearment. Some Can Whistle spins a tale of Hollywood glitz and Texas grit; of an extraordinary young woman and a murderous young man; and of a middle-aged millionaire running head-on into the longings, joys, and pathos of real life.
Larry McMurtry, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, is the author of twenty-five novels, three collections of essays, two memoirs, and more than thirty screenplays, and is the editor of a collection of short stories of the modern West. He lives in Archer City, Texas.

Playboy McMurtry has a gift for probing the poignant depths of parent-child relationships, and the emotional roller-coaster ride of this love affair between father and daughter is a moving, hilarious delight.
