Summary
""Tex Rex" is a highly original novel, crowded with larger-than-life characters, whose antics carry them beyond the borders of Texas into a world of higher education, philanthropy, and even that of Osama bin Laden.The author puts his distinctive brand on the positive and negative aspects of the still living myths that animate our ideas about the West and the American West's quest for freedom, land, and gold, and of Texas and Dallas. It is a story about a man who believes he is the king of Texas and that his daughter Lily, who is antic and more cruel than Mary Queen of Scots, is a lovely part of Dallas society. Then there is poor Henry Rose, a failed professor and provost of a two-bit college at the edge of Dallas, who is haplessly and hopelessly caught in the King's and his daughter's web, and it is a sticky web. These folks are deluded, but delusions are dangerous--Jacket
