Anything for Billy

Larry McMurtry. Pocket Books, $5.5 (0pp) ISBN 978-0-671-67091-7

This fictional memoir of Billy the Kid is told through the eyes of an alien trite simile?gs Eastern writer who just happened to be along for the ride, saw it all and aims to set the record straight. ``The tale of random violence, unlikely romance and quicksilver friendships in the old West is a rip-roaring gamble with a tear in its eye, and it pays off in spades.'' stated PW .
