Any Kind of Luck Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Any Kind of Luck


In the tradition of Larry McMurtry's unadulterated, character-driven novels, William Jack Sibley's Any Kind of Luck takes a satirical yet heartfelt romp through the social mores of a Southern small town. The question begs; can two urban, gay men in a committed relationship persevere in the pastoral heartland? In a novel that Pulitzer Prize winner McMurtry calls, “lively, funny and moving," Sibley addresses the need to make peace with the past, trust one's innate character, and to ultimately accept the lonely journey we must all make to "bury our parents.”
