The Last of 'the Waltz Across Texas' and Other Stories
"Jo Carson's first book of fiction which proves to be a deft storytelling with keen imagination and sense of humor. Carson's well-developed characters work within the context of family, friends and community as they cope with the raw edges of life itself. Jo Carson says survival 'is not always funny, and sometimes it hurts, but whatever so human an animal as we are has to do to stay whole is the stuff of it, and we laugh and laugh hard, or we come to pieces.'"--AMAZON
