'This is Reynoldss fourth novel about the dusty, hot, and sleepy West Texas town of Agatite, a faded stewpot of roiling passions, savage gossip, and crooked politics...This warm and entertaining story is solidly written and vividly atmospheric. Reynolds spins a compelling yarn' - "Publishers Weekly". 'Although [Reynolds] is not as well known outside of Texas as Larry McMurtry and Cormac McCarthy, he has probed and deciphered the nature of the past at levels deeper than theirs ...and in his new novel, "Monuments", the results of his quest are brought into apposite and poignant focus' - "Bloomsbury Review". 'Fourteen-year-old Hugh Rudd had his summer planned: mow lawns, practice baseball, buy a new mountain bike, get ready for high school. But the Burlington Northern Railroads determination to demolish the Hendershot Grocery Ware-house, a symbol of Hughs small Texas home town since the turn of the century...makes Hugh re-examine his plans...The final confrontation is both action-packed and satisfying' - "Booklist". 'Hugh Rudd learns during one summer in his small north Texas town that nothing lasts forever especially innocence. "San Antonio Express-News" secures [Reynoldss] place among fine Texas and American writers...A wonderfully satisfying reading experience' - Review of "Texas Books". There is no doubt of the authors keen understanding of what makes a small town tick. Denver Post Novelist, critic, and native Texan Clay Reynolds is professor of arts and humanities at the University of Texas at Dallas and serves as the schools associate dean for undergraduate studies. His numerous other works include "Threading the Needle" and "The Vigil", both published by Texas Tech University Press.
