Description : Benjamin Capps has been called the Texas author whose work will be read 100 years from now, but Clayton notes that Caps has not been the frequent subject of nationally disseminated critical interpretation, perhaps because he is an anomaly—a writer of serious, literary fiction set in the West. Notable are Capps's perceptive characterizations and his use of historical background and folklore.

Description : The Texas Folklore Society is one of the oldest and most prestigious organizations in the state. Its secret for longevity lies in those things that make it unique, such as its annual meeting that seems more like a social event or family reunion than a formal academic gathering. This book examines the Society's members and their substantial contributions to the field of folklore over the last century. Some articles focus on the research that was done in the past, while others offer studies that continue today. This book does more than present a history of the Texas Folklore Society: it explains why the TFS has lasted so long, and why it will continue.

Description : This is the first full-length study of the life and writings of the Texas novelist, William Humphrey, who died August 21, 1997. Based on research in Humphrey's vast archives at the University of Texas, it provides the first full picture of his life and identifies many untraced sources of his work. The guiding principle is an exploration of Humphrey's satire on life-destroying myths: the myths of the hunter, the South, the cowboy hero, the Depression-era outlaw, and, supremely, the myth of Texas. To his dismay, Humphrey was often seen as a celebrator of these myths.

Description : Rolando Hinojosa is a Texas writer with his sense of place centered in the Texas Valley, a world in itself and a place recognizable as a discrete community. But Hinojosa’s work transcends the regional, transcends the Valley, transcends Texas, while it remains rooted in all three. Hinojosa is treated here from the perspective of his place in the mainstream of American literature and with his attempts to write works that speak to a large and more diverse audience, rather than from the perspective of his place within the world of Texas-Mexican literature. Joyce Lee does not neglect the regional aspects of Hinojosa's works, but puts them into the context of what they say about the vitality of American culture at large and about the Mexican culture's variations of the American Dream. Covers Hinojosa's full-length books-- Dear Rafe, Klail City, The Useless Servants, The Valley, Partners in Crime, and Rites and Witnesses --as well as his essays and articles.
