Texas Literature: A Case Study offers a sampling of stories, poems, essays, images, and historical documents from the state Molly Ivins affectionately called "cantankerous and ridiculously friendly." In his introduction to the book, Dagoberto Gilb writes of the state he calls home: "If for no other reason than that it lasted ten years as a country all its own, ‘region’ does not pertain to it." Texas is in a category all its own.

We invite you to enjoy this collection and hope it enriches your own perspective on the Lone Star state. As Gilb writes: "¡Que viva Texas! Onward and adelante!"
"I am so pleased to see a collection of Texas voices and images that is broad in its scope of years, heritage, and genre, and in its attention to the diversity that is Texas."
