Paperback Swap’s review:

Whether he’s writing about the man who wrote the hit song “Louie Louie,” the bizarre meeting between Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley, the inventor who changed baseball, or the father and son whose annual one-on-one basketball shoot-out is a symbol of their love and of time’s passage, Bob Greene shares stories in which we see ourselves.

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.”
