Statesman Selects Review: THE EYE OF THE MAMMOTH

“Through it all, Harrigan writes with ease, with a straightforward, friendly thoughtfulness that lures you in and makes you wonder how someone can be so nice, so modest, so self-deprecating at times, when it’s obvious that writing as concisely and clearly as he does is quite difficult. And, yes, the topics are usually related to Texas — or seen through a Texas prism. Lemann writes that Harrigan has given us “as good a picture as we have, not only of Texas during the past generation, but, more importantly, of what being a Texan has meant.” “
