This same author wrote “The Grifters,” and “The Getaway,” so had he NOT written this little novel he would still be “cool as s%$#.” So yes, might as well add this little gem to your collection. And if you haven’t read or seen Grifters or Getaway then I’m not sure I can know you anymore.
Texas by the Tail is a story of gambling, bum luck, greed, and the great state of Texas, back in the day. Anyone who has ever spent any time in the Lone Star State will admire the descriptions of places like Houston, Dallas, and Big Spring. Oil, race, land, greed, and the almighty roll of the dice.
Get it, read it.
