Giant Country : Essays on Texas - used book

ISBN: 0875651828

ID: 4886241

In Giant Country Don Graham brings together a collection of lively, absorbing essays written over the past two decades. The collection begins with a twist on book introductions that sets the tone for the essays to come--a self-interview conducted poolside at an eccentric Houston motel favored by regional rock bands. Over pia coladas the author works on his tan and discusses timeless Texas themes: the transition of the state from a rural to an urban world, the sense of a vanishing era, and the way that artists in literature and film represent a state both infectiously grand and too big for its britches. In "Fildelphia Story," Graham remembers his Ivy League professorial stint in a city the small-town Texan who rented him a moving van looked up under "F." In "Doing England" the Lone Star Yankee courts Oxford University and returns with a veddy British education. In "The Ground Sense Necessary" a native son journeys inward to explore the dry ceremonies of frontier Protestantism and to recount movingly his father's funeral in Collin County. With his wide-ranging knowledge of classic regional works, Graham unerringly traces the style and substance of local literary giants and offers a sometimes irreverent but always entertaining look at the Texas triumvirate of Dobie, Webb and Bedichek. Other essays look at such Texas greats as Katherine Anne Porter, George Sessions Perry, William Humphrey and John Graves. In a section he calls "Polemics," Graham includes his best known essays, "P americas,classics,criticism and theory,essays,essays and correspondence,history,history and criticism,literary criticism,literary criticism and collections,literature and fiction Science & Math, Texas Christian University Press

Giant Country: Essays on Texas - new book

The rich diversity of our fall list indicates TCU Press´s continuing commitment to quality regional publishing. We are proud to have two of Texas´ best-known authors on our list. Gary Cartwright´s Galveston -- too long out of print and now making its first appearance in a paper edition -- is a book much requested both on Galveston Island and throughout the state. C. W. Smith´s novel, Understanding Women, goes beyond the usual coming-of-age fiction by capturing the contradictions and tensions of the 1950s in America and by dealing with the then-forbidden issue of abortion. In a different publishing climate, both books would have gone to commercial publishers. New York´s loss is our gain.The funny, poignant memoir, In Jewish Texas, joins our two previous studies of the Jewish experience in Texas -- the more scholarly history, A Light in the Prairie: Temple Emanu-El of Dallas, 1872-1997, and the young-adult novel, The Treasure in the Tiny Blue Tin. All three books illustrate our interest in exploring Texas history and life.
