The Texas literary scene is still hopping, as previously reported. And it seems like a dozen or so Texas-related books arrive each month.
Here’s what’s coming up.
“Waylon: Tales of My Outlaw Dad,” by Terry Jennings and David Thomas. Terry Jennings, Waylon’s son, was born when his dad was only 19, and he grew up in a wild period of touring, drugs and chasing women, along with multiple divorces and other troubles. It’s being billed as an honest warts-and-all biography. Terry is the founder of Korban Music Group and lives near Waco. He teamed up with Thomas, whose books including “Wrestling for My Life” and “Foxcatcher,” the inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film. He lives near Fort Worth. It’s due in April from Hachette
