The classic American novel that was the source for the Oscar-winning film starring Dustin Hoffman and Jon Voight, now back in print from Scribner. Joe Buck, a good-looking, naively charming Texas 'cowboy' who's convinced that he's the salvation of many love-starved New York women, makes his way to the Big Apple to seek his fortune. Trouble is, his well-to-do clientele never materialises and the only wealth he finds is in the friendship of Ratso Rizzo, a scrounging, sleazy, small-time con man with big dreams. Living on the tattered fringe of society, these two outcasts develop an unlikely bond - one that transcends their broken dreams and get-rich-quick schemes and makes MIDNIGHT COWBOY that rarest of things...every bit as moving now as it was when it was first published. MIDNIGHT COWBOY is the powerful and unforgettable novel of the compelling need of human beings for one another.Biografía del autor:
