Land of the Permanent Wave by Edwin Shrake – Dedication

In Books, Short Stories on June 21, 2010 at 8:41 am

Meet the mad dogs. These Texas writes – Gary Cartwright, Ann Richards, Jerry Jeff Walker, Willie Nelson, Steven Long, Larry L. King and Bud Shrake – raised hell and loved writing about the great state of Texas.

Edwin “Bud” Shrake’s Land of the Permanent Wave is a collection of short stories and news articles specifically about the Texas frontier.

Ben Fountain, who wrote “Brief Encounters with Che Chuevara,” said:

“Bud Shrank seems to have packed about six lifetimes’ worth of experience into one, and he writes about his experiences with intelligence, wit, and skill.”

For Jody Gent

Why dedicate it Jody?  Pete and Jody Gent were Mad Dogs too. They gave Bud a swing with a gorgeous view of the sunset.

Steven L. Davis (editor) also added a dedication ~

Para mis tres hermanos:

Jeff, Joe, Don
