I am from Texas and just read a very TEXAS collection of stories by Murray Edwards. Lots of humor, lots of insight into people. If you're one of those people who like short fiction, perhaps due to the intimidation factor of a LONG book, this might be for you. There are a few cheap shots at the overweight in the book, but otherwise it will remind you of McMurtry or other Texas writers who can see the humor in lots of situations, create some unique characters, and turn a great phrase. Of course I have posted this book to share.

Subject: Oh, yeah, title of Texas story collection is Looking for Lucy Gilligan
