Literary Nonfiction. Essays. Texas History. "Ranchers, artists, priests, wildlife managers, and chili aficionados, are just a few of the the people you'll meet in Lonn Taylor's rollicking and deeply affecting, Marfa for the Perplexed. Not so much a tourist guide as a reminder that everywhere has been somewhere for a very long time, Taylor moves past the where to's and why go there's, and shows a region that has lived independent from and in tandem with visitations of all kinds. This is one of the most enjoyable reads I've had in a long time."—Gabrielle Calvocoressi, author of Rocket Fantastic: Poems and Apocalyptic Swing
