Wright presents many facets of Texas that will surprise even life-long Texans.
Oil (booms and busts, fracking), space (NASA and Bezos), music (Willy Nelson, Roy ), politics (from blue to red), the Californiazation of Texas (recycling, etc), guns, the big D – Dallas – post-Kennedy assassination, slavery, Native Americans & buffalo, hurricanes, Astrodome – for sale, the borderlands. You name it – Wright writes about it.
Wright even covers Marfa, Donald Judd, minimalism, the Mystery Lights and Big Bend as part of the remote West Texas.
Easy to read vignettes that will certainly amuse.
NPR calls this “Essential reading…for how one state changed the trajectory of the country.” Both liberal under LBJ and conservative under the Bushes.
