Advance praise for God Save Texas

“This thoughtful, engrossing, and often-amusing survey is a kind of ‘waltz through Texas.’ . . . It is a state whose history, politics and culture Wright finds endearing, repelling, and puzzling, all dependent upon which aspect he is exploring and describing . . . An important book about a state and people who will continue to have a large impact on the U.S.” —Jay Freeman, Booklist (starred review)
“An unflinching look at Texas—the state where Wright has spent most of his life—in all its grandeur and contradictions. . . . Wright’s large-scale portrait, which reveals how Texas is only growing in influence, is comprehensive, insightful, and compulsively entertaining.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“One of the state’s most renowned writers takes readers deep into the heart of Texas. As a staffer for The New Yorker and a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Wright has illuminated a variety of intriguing subcultures. His native Texas is as exotic as any of them. He approaches his subject on a number of levels: as a stereotype, a movie myth, a cultural melting pot, a borderland, a harbinger of what is to come in an increasingly polarized and conservative country, and as a crucible that has shaped the character of a young writer who couldn’t wait to escape but was drawn back . . . A revelation.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
