God Save Texas by Lawrence WrightPosted: August 18, 2018 Filed under: Texas Leave a comment
a spontaneous Helytimes Book Prize For Excellence is awarded to God Save Texas by Lawrence Wright. Absolutely fantastic. The Alamo, Marfa, Willie Nelson, Ann Richards, how the legislature works, the Kennedy assassination, Spindletop, everything you’d want to read about in a book about Texas is succinctly, thoughtfully, humorously explored.
A special bonus: this book has a firsthand account of the 1999 Matthew McConaughey “bongos incident.”
