Lone Star Literature by Don Graham
Book DescriptionA vast land combining the West, the South, and the Border, small dusty towns and gleaming modern cities, Texas has a history and identity all its own, and a mythology bigger than the Lone Star State itself. In this anthology, selected as a Southwest Book of the Year in 2003, Don Graham has rounded up a comprehensive collection of writings that provides an overview of the diversity and excellence of Texas literature and reveals its vital contribution to America's literary landscape. The result is a sometimes rowdy, always artful panorama of fable and truth, humor and pathos-all growing out of the state that continues to stimulate the collective imagination like no other.

Suitable for anyone who thinks that oil wells and big hair define Texas can find out differently in the dazzling short fiction presented in South by Southwest, this book includes Texas stories that are among the best produced by the state's writers in the mid-twentieth century.
Gay Place, Paperback / softback» View all books by Don Graham
Set in Texas, The Gay Place consists of three interlocking novels, each with a different protagonist - a member of the state legislature, the state's junior senator, and the governor's press secretary. The governor himself, Arthur Fenstemaker, a master politician, infinitely canny and seductive, remains the dominant figure throughout.
