it was amazing

I loved this story....more demure in tone than most of his books, "Texasville" tells the tale of the build-up and inevitable let down of the Thalia centennial. My favorite characters are Sonny and Jacy. Sonny begins to lose his mind via dementia and sees movies that aren't there whilst driving or sitting in burnt-out picture shows, and Jacy returns home to Thalia to process the grief she feels over the death of her son. I think the back cover describes it well: it is a tale about getting older without growing up.
