Yet Another Book Trying To Explain Texas

Last year brought us books by a New York liberal (Gail Collins, As Texas Goes …) and a Dallas billionaire Republican and his son (Sam and Andrew Wyly, Texas Got it Right!). Now April will bring us one from a senior editor at Texas Monthly: Erica Grieder, Big, Hot, Cheap and Right. Collins was the early leader in the clubhouse, but Grieder uses the term “sui generis” to describe the state on page four of the introduction. So hang on. This isn’t over yet.
