In their own ways, the stories in Texas Soundtrack are as musical as the songs that inspired them, each with its own rhythm, its own beat, its own insights into Texas people and Texas places. They resonate in the mind long after you read them.
What these stories do and how they do it reveals the same great diversity as the songs that gave them life. One thing is for certain, whether you are a native Texan, a proud, timetested transplant or a devotee of Lone Star life and letters, you will find within these pages both familiarity and truth.
