'Into the quiet existence of this Texas version of Oblomov, who spends his days lounging around in a kaftan, comes an unexpected telephone call from T.R., the daughter he has never seen, which changes Danny's life, and those of everyone around him, including T.R. herself.  She brings into her father's hesitant and somewhat fatalistic embrace her two children; one lover, Muddy, who is a failed burglar; and another, Earl Dee, who is perhaps Larry McMurtry's most chilling creation since Blue Duck in Lonesome Dove, as well as a mixed bag of camp followers.'
