Lawrence Wright lives in Austin, Texas, a funky "blue freckle" in a red state. He tours both the physical and political landscapes of Texas, offering both criticism and defense for his home in the wake of a national political shift. Wright doesn't speak with a twang anymore, but he demonstrates it occasionally as he quotes other natives. His soft-spoken narration is engaging, with the wry turns of phrase creeping up on listeners. He takes listeners on a tour of diverse, affordable Houston and reports debate over transgender bathroom rights in the state legislature. He also recalls the gubernatorial career of a radio personality who presaged President Trump. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
