in the Lone Star state, and the stories are grouped by region such as Gulf Coast Texas, Back Roads Texas and Big City Texas. My favorite story was “Phelan’s First Case” by Lisa Sandlin because I love hardboiled detective stories. My second favorite is “Luck” by James Crumley because the story is told through letters written by each character, which is a bit different. Anyway, I’m proud of my new state and I’m enjoying these Texas stories. Hope you enjoy them too!
