In Austin much reverence is misted upon the socio-political correctness (replacing the old concept of social correctness of Victorian propriety) of understanding our state's developing cultural memes, and Michael Barnes begins his Austin 360 column in Out and About with the ever proper soft inquiry and soliticitation, "The eternal question: What came before? // Reporting on Austin's social scene, one wants to know about people, places and parties in ancestral, modern and contemporary Texas society. // Thus, my once and future reading list, posted below. Additions welcome."
I'll mention the authors Barnes intones, but let you wonder or click to learn what are the actual titles he suggests: Frantz, Brammer, Bebichek, Burrough, Bird, Thompson, Webb, Shrake, Dalleck, and Caro. If you don't know 5 of the names, take the cure at Barton Springs. If you do know 5 or more, take a swim at Barton Springs. If you know 7 or more, bask in the company of Philosopher's Rock's company.
