The Bookshelf, The Parlor, The Young Texas Reader, and the Monthly

The Texas Bookshelf is different from the The Texas Parlor, . The Texas Parlor carries "general" bookish information and non-book information and even different Texana news and notes of use to the bibliographically challenged and other nosey folks intersted in historical, literary, and cultural observations. Will's Texana Monthly may carry material from either blog, but extends itself beyond those, especially for longer compilations or treatments. The Monthly, the Bookshelf and the Parlor are all companions. So, is the Young Texas Reader which specialized on books and such things for the youngest to the teenagers.

Oh, the Hell of It All:

A Memoir.

By Pat Montandon.

NY: HarperCollins, 2007. Illustrated. 353 pp. $25.95. Who’s Pat Montandon? Well, as this preacher’s daughter’s biography recounts she grew up in the 1930s in Texas and Oklahoma, got a job at Neiman-Marcus and then left. She dated Frank Sinatra and she lost a Peace Prize to Elie Wiesel.

Well, a gal could do worse.
